City, PMMC Update Lift Station to Meet Growing Demand
The city’s water quality department and the Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC) collaborated to upgrade the wastewater pumping facility that supports both the Animal Shelter and the PMMC. The upgrade to the station eliminates difficulties handling peak flow capacities, greatly improves reliability, and allows for superior monitoring of the station’s operations. The City Council and the PMMC Board of Directors split the cost of the facility upgrades.
