Alum Creek Storm Tanks – Real Time Control

This project will construct a 450-ft of 60-inch corrosion resistant pipe to replace the existing 42-inch sanitary sewer near Roads End Pl. and College Ave. This project will also rehabilitate the elliptical pipe under Alum Creek near Roads End Place. It will also remove the flap gate on Alum Creek Interceptor Sewer near Airport Dr. and Kelenard Ave., and rehabilitate associated manhole structures.

The goal of the project is to mitigate sewer overflow to Alum Creek at DSR 244 near Roads End Pl. to a 10-year level of service, and prevent river inflow and infiltration to the sanitary sewer. This project also allows us to fully utilize the upstream end of the Alum Creek Interceptor Sewer.  

Pending final approval from Ohio EPA, construction is expected to begin in late Fall of 2020.

Financing for this project is being provided through a below market-rate loan from the OEPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program. Prior to granting this loan, the Ohio EPA required a detailed submittal from the Division of Sewerage and Drainage to determine the project’s eligibility.
