Michels recently completed the installation of the mud mat for the Strong Avenue Pump Station located behind the Argentine levee unit. The mud mat will serve as a working surface and the foundation for the new pump station. The new pump station is being relocated further behind the levee to reduce conflicts with the levee and BNSF Railroad infrastructure. The new pump station will have an increased capacity of 52,000 gpm (gallons per minute), three times the capacity of the existing system, because the Unified Government elected to include a betterment within the contract to provide additional pumping capacity. The new Strong Avenue Pump Station is scheduled to be complete and operational by fall 2022.
