Sayre Borough Oliver Lane Pump Station Ribbon Cutting

Borton-Lawson was proud to join Sayre Borough officials for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the newly-built river pump station on Oliver Lane.

Our team joined members of the Sayre Borough Council, Vacri Construction, the project’s general contractor, and Rose Hannis, who owns the property near the pump station. Borton-Lawson was responsible for the design, bidding and construction administration services of the project.


The September 2011 flood damaged the station’s pumps, generator, generator pad, electrical equipment and HVAC system. As part of the project, those elements were removed.

Three new pumps were installed two feet above the levee and the existing pump station was modified to accommodate the elevated pumps. A new 100 KW emergency generator, automatic transfer switch and electrical, control and HVAC systems were also installed.

All work on the pump station was financed through a grant the borough received from the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority.
