November 2018 Updates


  • The Contractor has completed the majority of mechanical and civil work and begun installation of new protective coatings inside the pump station. Current ongoing work is anticipated to be complete by the end of November.
  • Delivery of the new electrical equipment for the pump station has been delayed. The current bypass system in place at the pump station is not large enough to bypass the high wet weather flows seen during large rain events.
  • To ensure system reliability and public safety during the upcoming wet weather season, the Contractor will complete the remaining mechanical and civil work now and return the pump station to normal operation as soon as possible.
  • The Contractor will return to the pump station after the wet weather season to install the new electrical equipment and complete the project.
  • By taking this action, the Contractor will not need to install or operate a bypass pumping system when they return next spring.

Project Summary


The Kentfield PS 15 Improvements will replace old or outdated system infrastructure and enhance local wastewater system reliability and efficiency. The project is being completed at a cost of $2 million.


Located in Kentfield, the pump station is along Marin County Bicycle Route 20, adjacent to Corte Madera Creek and just south of Stadium Way.


Project Construction Will Include

  • Use of Marin County Bicycle Route 20 for equipment/trucks to access the Pump Station.
  • Rehabilitation of portions of the existing pump station, including inlet channel modifications, concrete repairs, manhole modification and rehabilitation and the installation of new electrical equipment.
  • Bypass pumping connections and ancillary work. 

What You Can Expect

Once the contractor is ready to deliver and install the new pump station equipment, several pickup trucks will arrive and depart each day along Marin County Bicycle Route 20. Trucks will enter from Bon Air Road and travel along Corte Madera Creek to the Pump Station. 


Please expect noise, dust, partial bike lane closures and travel delays near the work site during construction activity. All construction equipment and materials will be stored within the fenced area surrounding the Pump Station. Local emergency access will be maintained at all times.


  • Noise, Dust, Lane Closures and Detours, Travel Delays
