Project Name: Harding Drain Bypass Pump Station and Pipeline
Owner: City of Turlock
Completion: February 2014

The Harding Drain Bypass Pump Station and Pipeline project eliminated discharge of the City of Turlock’s treated wastewater into Turlock Irrigation District’s canal system and directly into the San Joaquin River. This increased the efficiency of TID’s operations and allowed separate monitoring of agricultural and municipal discharge, which are subject to different regulatory requirements. The project involved the construction of a 510 HP pump station and a 30,000 LF 36” steel water transmission pipeline with several intermediate cast-in-place junction structures. Additional activities included treatment of contaminated groundwater prior to discharge, environmental mitigation and SWPPP development and implementation.
