Blacklick Creek Sanitary Interceptor Sewer (BCSIS)

Capital Improvements Project Number 650034-100008

Columbus will be constructing a new air quality facility for the recently constructed Blacklick Creek Sanitary Interceptor Sewer (BCSIS), It will provide improved air quality and odor control for the region and aid in the reduction of sewer system corrosion by treating hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The improvements will include construction of media beds, and an approximately 1,000 square foot single story building to house controls and instrumentation.

The project area is located at the southern extent of the BCSIS at 7154 Blacklick Ridge Boulevard, near the intersection of Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road and Blacklick Ridge Boulevard. 

The project will begin in early fall 2023 and completed by the end of 2024.

Traffic impacts should be minimal and will be coordinated with Paving the Way. Invitations to a public meeting prior to construction will be sent via mail to properties in the immediate vicinity of the site.  

Financing for this contract is being provided by a below-market rate loan obtained through the OEPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) and the debt is being serviced through City of Columbus sewer customer revenue.
