Hole Montes has completed construction engineering and inspection services on a new $10.6 million wastewater pump station that doubles the plant’s daily processing capabilities.

Master Pump Station 306 replaced a 35-year-old facility that had aging mechanical and electrical components. The new pump station minimizes the potential for odors and spills while offering greater reliability, flexibility and performance.

Located at 3935 Thomasson Lane Drive in Naples, Master Pump Station 306 can process 15.8 million gallons per day compared to the previous capacity of 7.5 million gallons.

“Not only does this new pump station double capacity, but it also has a diesel generator that can continue driving the system even during a power outage,” said Bob Mulhere, president of Hole Montes. “That will be incredibly important during the hurricane and rainy seasons, and the pump station serves areas of Collier County that are prone to flooding.”

Master Pump Station 306 contains three electric chopper pumps and three diesel in-line booster pumps inside of a two-story building. The project eliminates the need for a wet well outdoors because wastewater is continuously pumped through the system into the South County Water Reclamation Facility.

Hole Montes’ project team was led by Senior Project Manager David W. Schmitt and Inspector Mike Roddis. Project partners included PWC Joint Venture as project contractor and AECOM as consultant engineer. The project was a major initiative of the Collier County Water-Sewer District.
