"Larchmont Area Sanitary Sewer Improvements"
Larchmont Area Sanitary Sewer Improvements
HRSD Capital Improvement Program Project (VP015320)

HRSD and the City of Norfolk Department of Utilities are working together to begin a strategic program to replace, upgrade and relocate sanitary sewer pump stations and the connecting pipelines in the Larchmont Neighborhood. This program, made possible through wastewater collection and wastewater treatment fees, will protect public health by reducing the risk of sewer spills during large rainfall events.

Sewer Connection


HRSD and the City adopted the Larchmont Comprehensive Sanitary Sewer Master Plan in early 2020. In this plan, both parties agreed to replace aging wastewater infrastructure at the same time. Working together at every stage of the program to save customers money through shared design, construction efforts, and program management. By performing these needed infrastructure improvements simultaneously, the neighborhood experiences construction impacts only once, lessening the overall disruption to daily life.

Currently, the Larchmont Neighborhood is serviced with eight aging pump stations located throughout the area. Following a value engineering process conducted to ensure an improved and enhanced system at the lowest cost, the program will consist of consolidating four existing stations into three new stations while rehabilitating three existing stations with new pumps, structural rehabilitation and upgrading of electrical panels. A remaining pump station on Westwood Terrace was upgraded within the past few years and will remain in operation.

At the same time, construction to connect new sewer pipelines to the HRSD treatment plant will occur. Simultaneously constructing the pump stations and the pipelines will allow for contractors to complete their work as efficiently as possible and will minimize the overall timeline for disruptive construction work in the neighborhood.

The three new pump stations will be located at the following addresses:

  • 6160 Rolfe Avenue
  • 1101 Magnolia Avenue
  • 933 Hanover Avenue

The three pump stations that will undergo rehabilitation are located at the following addresses:

  • 1548 Buckingham Avenue
  • 900 Jamestown Crescent
  • 1228 Richmond Crescent

A map of both the new and rehabilitated locations and new sewer pipelines can be viewed under the Project Map tab.

We expect to release final designs, construction dates and project cost in late 2023 via this project website and at future civic and community group meetings.
