Approval of a construction project for 2 vortex inserts at the out fall locations of the Tudor Road Pump Station Force Main.
Key Issues:
? Lee’s Summit operates the Tudor Road Pump Station, which handles the wastewater flows from the areas northeast of the railroad in downtown Lee’s Summit to Colbern Road and the eastern city limit.
? This pump station handles flows from gravity lines and other pump stations in the basins and routinely sees flows that have an advanced sludge age. This creates an environment where sulfide development and release can occur leading to odor issues at the outfall locations.
? These issues has been reviewed and attempted to be addressed several times in the past with a variety of recommended technologies.

Currently the City is feeding iron salts in the form of Ferric Chloride at the pump station in order to manage the sulfide issue. This is expensive and a difficult process to manage.
? Failures in this system have continued to cause odor issues for the downstream customers.
