The Town of Car­bon­ear hopes that work on the up­graded lift sta­tion on Pike’s Lane will soon be com­pleted.

Car­bon­ear’s pub­lic works di­rec­tor ex­pects work to upgrade the town’s lift sta­tion on Pike’s Lane will clue up in the near fu­ture.

At last Mon­day’s coun­cil meet­ing, Brian O’Grady said the town was wait­ing on a com­po­nent for the pro­ject.

He an­tic­i­pated the sup­plier in St. John’s would have it by Fri­day.

“If all that hap­pens, next week they should be back at fin­ish­ing the pump sta­tion,” O’Grady told coun­cil­lors last Mon­day.

The lift sta­tion on Pike’s Lane was orig­i­nally in­stalled in 1989 and han­dles over half of the town’s ef­flu­ent.

In re­cent years there have been ca­pac­ity is­sues and main­te­nance chal­lenges with the sta­tion.

In Jan­uary 2015, the town ac­cepted a bid of $574,000 for the nec­es­sary up­grades, which in­clude a new pump­ing sys­tem, backup gen­er­a­tor and elec­tri­cal sys­tem.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity will cover 20 per cent of that cost.
