Blueprint Hilltop: Lining Project

The Blueprint Hilltop Lining Project will rehabilitate existing sanitary sewer mains and associated manholes in the project area. The project area is located within the Hilltop planning area and is bounded by West Broad Street on the north, Derrer Road on the west, Sullivant Avenue on the south and Wheatland Avenue on the east. The goal of this project is to reduce the amount of inflow and infiltration of non-sewerage waters to the sanitary sewer system thereby reducing occurrences of water in basements and sewerage overflows to area streams and rivers.

The project includes over 100,000 linear feet of 8-inch to 30-inch diameter sewers and over 500 manholes. The sewers will be rehabilitated using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) methods and the manholes will be rehabilitated with a cementitious liner. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2016.

Area residents will receive notifications prior to the work being performed. The notifications will give information on timing of the work, contact information and a request to restrict water usage for the short time (8-10 hours) while sewer main is being CIPP lined.  

The estimated construction cost is approximately $6 million. Financing is being provided through a below market-rate loan through 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.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER and the letter of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies."
