Parker Pump Station Replacement Project Noise Impacts
Construction is gaining momentum on the Parker Pump Station Replacement Project. This critical infrastructure, located at Eighth Street and Coronado Avenue, is responsible for collecting storm water and sanitary sewer flows. The City contractor is preparing to install the new underground pump station structures.

As part of the preparations, crews are installing shoring for the excavation operation. Even with sound barriers in place, during this process the surrounding neighborhood will be impacted by the noise generated from the operation. The shoring installation has started and is expected to be completed on April 28. The City’s $26 million investment in the new pump station will improve operational efficiency, prevent flooding in homes, and pollution to the ocean.
