Richburg #2 Lift Station Project


The Chester Sewer District is pleased to announce the completion of the Richburg #2 Lift Station Project. This project was funded in part by the US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the generous contributions of Fairfield Electric, Duke Energy, and TruVista Communications.

This project allowed the CSD to replace 9,200 linear feet (1.75 miles) of 14″ force main along Highway 9 in the Richburg area and install a new, larger “Richburg #2” lift station.  The completion of this project will alleviate wastewater bottlenecks in the lines flowing to the Lando-Maneta Wastewater Treatment Plant and also more efficiently serve not only the current and future residents and businesses of the Richburg area, but also the recent expansion at Guardian Industries, which created approximately 70 new jobs and brought an investment of nearly $45 Million to Chester County.

Construction began in late 2013. The project was officially closed out in early 2015. Project design was done by Keck & Wood of Rock Hill, grant administration was handled by Mike Vead at the Catawba Regional Council of Governments, and Construction was completed by Trussell Brothers Construction Company of Columbia.

Out sincerest appreciation goes out to all of our partners in successfully completing this project.
