Project Name Cost Location
Relocate Anna Street Lift Station 3
Discontinue use of the Ama lift station and relocate pumps and controls to the Anna Street lift station. This would be a great cost savings to the parish. It is also a safety concern as employees get trapped by trains switching.

$282,000

Ama
Killona Force Main to the Hahnville Wastewater Treatment Plant 3
This is to separate the flows from the Killona lift station and the prison lift station from the flows from the Boutte booster and 3127 lift station. This will allow both flows to enter the Hahnville Wastewater Treatment Plant separately to avoid fighting each other. This will help prevent overflows in Killona.

$800,000

Killona
Montz Lift Station 3
This lift station has a capacity problem as the present well is undersized. This project is to install an additional well and connect the two wells. This will help prevent overflows in this area. No additional pumps are needed.

$800,000

Montz
Norco Booster Well 3
This lift station has a capacity problem as the present will is undersized. This project is to install an additional well and connect the two wells. This will help prevent overflows in this area. No additional pumps are needed.
$450,000 Norco

Primrose Lift Station and Force Main 3

This project is to replace the existing Primrose lift station and a portion of the force main to the Luling Oxidation Pond. This will increase the flows from the Boutte area, helping to prevent overflows. Also, the section of force main to be replaced is in very poor condition.
