Parker PS GB Web

The City of Coronado is breaking ground on the vital Parker Pump Station Replacement infrastructure project on Friday, January 6, 2023, at 10 am. The community is welcome and encouraged to attend the event! 

What: City of Coronado Groundbreaking Ceremony 
When: Friday, January 6, 2023, 10 am to 10:30 am
Where: Project site at Eighth Street and Coronado Avenue, Coronado 

The Parker Pump Station Replacement Project is vital to the City of Coronado's current and future infrastructure. The Project will construct a new $26 million wastewater and stormwater pump station to improve operational efficiency, prevent flooding in homes and pollutions to the ocean, and increase resiliency to sea level rise. The project will also create 6,000 square feet of green space for the community.

"I am pleased to report that the City of Coronado will receive three million dollars in federal appropriations to help fund the City’s new Parker Pump Station Replacement Project," said Tina Friend, Coronado City Manager. "Thank you to Congressman Scott Peters for championing this project for Coronado. The Parker Pump Station Replacement Project is vital to the City’s current and future infrastructure and will greatly benefit our residents and neighbors at Naval Base Coronado."   

This project will:

  • Construct a new pump station that will collect, and route storm water and sanitary sewer flows and replace the existing pump station.
  • Help minimize sewer failure/disruption to area residences and flooding from stormwater overflow during rain events by bringing the electrical components above ground and installing a permanent emergency generator.

The total cost of the project is $26 million. With Congressman Scott Peters from California's 52nd Congressional District championing this project, the City of Coronado will receive $3 million in federal appropriations to help fund the Parker Pump Station Replacement Project.

The new Parker Pump Station will replace the current aging and failing station located at the western end of the city, along the Naval Base boundary. The existing pump station was constructed in 1983 and services both storm water and wastewater flows. The replacement project will completely rebuild the Parker Pump Station to provide service for generations and better protect the pump station from the impacts from flooding and storm surge.

  • Pumps sewage from 230 homes
  • Pumps stormwater runoff from 230 homes
