The following information was released by the City of Cypress.
The Cypress City Council dedicated the newly constructed Myra Avenue Pump Station No. 2, located at 4261 Myra Avenue, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 9, 2012.
This state-of-the-art facility includes two 100-HP motors which power pumps that provide flow at a rate of 15,000 gallons per minute each.
New features also include various equipment upgrades and an emergency natural gas generator.
The Myra Avenue Pump Station No. 2 Project provides 25-year flood protection for approximately 71 acres of single family residential area, located just north of Cerritos Avenue, between Denni Street and Moody Street.
The City Council made flood protection a priority and programmed the project as part of the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
The project was designed by AKM Consulting Engineers from Irvine and was constructed by S.S. Mechanical from Huntington Beach, CA. Construction started in February 2011, and was substantially completed in February 2012.
