Mission Inn Booster Station & Pressure Rezoning Projects

About the Project

The Mission Inn Booster Station and Pressure Rezoning Project will involve construction of the Mission Inn Booster Station and related piping to consolidate two existing facilities: the Rubidoux and Mary Evans Booster Stations. Two separate pressure zones and portions of a third pressure zone will be consolidated into one zone to improve fire protection, system reliability, water pressure, and provide better operational efficiency. Construction includes a new pump station at Loring Park, abandonment of the existing Rubidoux and Mary Evans pump stations, and construction of approximately 5,250 linear feet of 8-inch and 12-inch ductile iron water main.
