Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District’s new Pumping Station 15 has earned the first Envision Gold Award for sustainable infrastructure in the State of Wisconsin. The award, presented by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure, rates projects based on their environmental, social and economic impacts and benefits. The location, between a boat ramp and a heavily used bike path, prompted the decision to add public restrooms, two boat wash hydrants (for aquatic invasive species control), and a bike repair station. Special design features of the site include permeable pavers, carefully sloped asphalt in the parking lot to direct storm runoff away from the lake and a bio-retention pond to catch water used at the boat washing station. Built by Miron Construction, the pumping station conveys an average of 1.32 million gallons of wastewater per day and now has the capacity to pump 8.8 million gallons per day.
