Lift Station 87 is being designed to withstand storm surges associated with a Category 3 hurricane. Critical equipment is being installed at an elevation of 26 feet to allow the facility to immediately return to service after a storm event. Hardening of the facility to this level will enhance service reliability and improve protection of human health and the environment. McKim & Creed is also assisting the city with a proactive outreach program to obtain resident input during design of the facility and to minimize disruption to the community during construction. This includes a series of community outreach meetings to obtain community consensus on architectural and landscaping plans for the new facility, which is being constructed in a city park.
