Comprehensive Sanitary Sewer Plan

On October 9, 2012, the Board of Commissioners approved Rettew Project No. 057702004 to develop a comprehensive sanitary sewer plan to include the following:

  • Inflow and infiltration (I&I) abatement program based on an eight (8) year schedule for the remediation of I&I into the sanitary sewer system;
  • Upgrading and rehabilitation of the sanitary sewer system to handle all current and future flows;
  • Upgrading and rehabilitation to the existing pumping stations.

Rettew has prepared the rehabilitation plans utilizing current Chapter 94 flow data and flow data from the flow meters installed within the sanitary sewer system.
