Document Description
The city proposes to implement improvements to its WWTP and sewer collection system identified in the facility plan and sewer collection system master plan. Proposed improvements would address sanitary sewer overflows, replace aging and unreliable infrastructure, comply with discharge regulations, and upgrade or replace non-functioning or obsolete treatment processes with efficient, adaptable, and reliable systems. These projects would improve the reliability of the WWTP and the capacity of the current system to accommodate existing peak hour wet weather flows, and mitigate storm-related sanitary sewer overflows, either through replacing existing pipe to reduce rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration, increasing the diameter of the pipelines or installing parallel relief sewers.
