Lift Station Relocation

The city of Rio Rancho Public Works Department held a meeting on Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014, to review the relocation of Lift Station #10 and seek public comment.

The public meeting took place at Rio Rancho City Hall, 3200 Civic Center Circle, and consist of:

  • 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. - overview of the project background/purpose
  • 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. - summary of technical memorandum
  • 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. - question and answer session and public comment

Lift Station #10 is currently located at the northwest corner of Southern Boulevard and N.M. 528 and is used to pump and move wastewater.  The proposed relocation site is a vacant lot near the intersection of Pinehurst and Lost Tree roads.  The purpose of the relocation project is to enhance the city’s ability to send wastewater to multiple waste treatment facilities while maintaining access to existing wastewater infrastructure.  The city of Rio Rancho has been awarded $5 million from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan program for this project, which will be repaid with revenues generated from the city’s utilities operations.

Following the meeting there will be a 45-day public comment period.  After the comment period ends, and with approval of the final environmental assessment document by the New Mexico Environment Department and related Rio Rancho Governing Body consent, construction work could start in November 2014 and would last approximately six months.
