Saddleback Lift Station Improvements Project
Placer County is renovating the Saddleback Lift Station (SBLS), built in 1979, in order to meet the capacity needs for the Saddleback Subdivision at buildout (144 connections), and to accommodate the high inflow and infiltration that occurs during the winter months. In order to upgrade the lift station components, meet peak wet weather flow demands, and accommodate planned buildout, the lift station improvements will include removing the existing overflow storage tanks and installing two new tanks; replacing the existing wet well with a fiberglass wet well, installing new pumps, a new back-up generator, and new electrical controls, upgrading data acquisition and odor control systems, and installing a new emergency shower and eyewash.
A Notice Of Exemption was prepared for this project.
The SBLS is located at the northwest corner of Dry Creek Road and Blue Grass Drive in North Auburn.
Construction is expected to begin in mid-October 2014.
What to Expect
- Occasional lane closures on Bluegrass Drive between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- Large trucks and equipment entering Bluegrass Drive (traffic control will be implemented; delays should be expected).
