Document Description
The Redwoods Community College District maintains a sanitary sewer collection and wastewater treatment system on the 220 acre College of the Redwoods Campus located east of Tompkins Hill Road, south of the city of Eureka. The District has identified substantial, rainfall-included inflow and infiltration (I/I) affecting the wastewater collection system. Through a variety of mechanisms, stormwater is entering the sanitary sewer collection system during and after storm events and is being delivered to the treatment plant. The district intends to carry out a series of system corrections and repairs to reduce I/I. this will enhance system efficiency by reducing the treated volume of wastewater and will limit the potential for continued leakage of untreated wastewater from the collection system. The specific repairs proposed vary by location but consists generally of the following methods: 1) Installation of an internal lining into existing sewer pipes (slip lining); 2) replacement of damaged pipes with new pipe of similar capacity; 3) spot repair and re-sealing of collection pipes, pipe joints, etc; 3) repair, lining, and re-sealing of manholes; and 4) removal of stormwater collection pipes from the sewer collection system.
