Douglas Island Wastewater Lift Station Returns to Normal Operation

March 9, 2023 – News

CBJ crews have successfully fixed the main pump at the Douglas Island Lift Station.

The pump is back on line and providing the necessary pressure to transport wastewater from Douglas Island over the bridge to the Juneau Douglas Wastewater Treatment plant. CBJ ceased discharging wastewater to the channel around 1 p.m.

Improvements to this lift station are a high priority for the Utility and both the Douglas Island and Outer Drive Lift Stations are scheduled for complete rehabilitation—including pump replacement—in 2024.
