The Fairfax County Department Public Works and Environmental Services is in the design phase of the rehabilitation of the Holmes Run Pump Station (HRPS) located at 6623 Dearborn Drive (near the intersection of Sleepy Hollow Road and Dearborn Drive) in Falls Church. This pump station is one of the oldest wastewater pump stations in Fairfax County and is in need of upgrades both inside and outside the station. The existing pump station building is in good condition and will remain. Many of the project upgrades will occur inside the building, however, there will be site improvements and impacts outside the building. These improvements include the addition of a stand-by generator and odor control system just north of the existing building, and improved vehicular access throughout the site for maintenance staff. Impacts to the site include tree loss, a walled enclosure for the generator and odor control equipment, and permeable pavers. During construction, a temporary bypass system will be needed for approximately two months, which will require temporary piping and driveway flow-through devices along the east side of the Sleepy Hollow Road right-of-way between the pump station (Dearborn Drive) and Malbrook Drive.
You are invited to participate in a virtual meeting regarding these improvements on Tuesday, July 21, from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. (EST).
