Most of the residents pass by the obscure white structure on Palos Verdes Drive West above Bluff Cove between Lunada Bay and Malaga Cove in Palos Verdes Estates without any idea as to what it is. This building is the "Douglas Cut Pumping Station" operated by the Sanitation District to pump sewage. Last Tuesday, the City Council of Palos Verdes Estates voted to bury this civic eyesore.
The building will be mostly buried under a contract estimated to cost approx. $1.5 million. The option to mostly bury the new structure cost an additional $200,000. An electric meter will remain above ground.The project is estimated to be completed by April 2010.
The existing station was constructed in 1962.
