Pump stations exceeding the NAPOT criteria must have a Remedial Action Plan (“RAP”) and no building permits can be issued for connections to the WCTS upstream of that station until the RAP is completed. WASD currently has over one hundred (100) sewage pump stations that do not comply with the NAPOT criteria. In order to accelerate the implementation of the PSIP and timely repair, upgrade or replace the subject pump stations for compliance with NAPOT criteria, WASD recognizes the need for Program and Construction Management services to assist with the implementation of the PSIP.
