Alum Creek Trunk – South (Phase 1) Sanitary Rehabilitation Project

CIP 650725-100004 

Closed-circuit TV camera inspections have revealed that the concrete within the nearly 60 year old Alum Creek Trunk Sewer has deteriorated, and must be repaired in order to continue serving the surrounding areas.

The City of Columbus will be performing trenchless rehabilitation of the nearly 8,500 lineal feet of 102 inch diameter sewer utilizing shotcrete repair methods in order to extend its service life. Construction is expected to begin in first quarter of 2023, and be complete by third quarter 2024.

As the trunk sewer is located along the Alum Creek Multi-Use Trail and predominantly situated within Three Creeks Park, users may notice caution signs, temporary ramps, and construction activity in close proximity. Every effort will be made to reduce any disruption to public accessed areas. 

Financing for this project is being provided through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund Program with a below market-rate loan. 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.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER and the letter(PDF, 695KB) of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Finding of No Significant Impact.”
