The Riverside County board of supervisors members are also the board members of the Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District, and the supervisors approved the use of development impact fee revenue for the sewer lift station expansion project at Lake Skinner Park, Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The supervisors’ 5-0 vote authorized the use of up to $2,268,113 of DIF funding for the Lake Skinner Park sewer lift station expansion and for the Rancho Jurupa Park improvements project. Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District capital improvement program funding will be used for the rest of the costs; the supervisors authorized up to $1,171,878 for the Lake Skinner Park work and up to $1,450,000 for the Rancho Jurupa Park project.
The Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District has contracted with the Eastern Municipal Water District for the sewer lift station. A new pre-engineered submersible lift station and valve vaults will improve the system reliability by eliminating the sewage leak on suction lines, eliminating all corroded piping and valves, eliminating the need for confined space entry, installing new electrical gear above grade and installing submersible sewage pumps with a higher capacity than the existing pumps.
