The Need: Combined sewer overflow events into the Ohio River were causing the station to fail to meet the City’s Consent Decree.

The Answer: Modifications were required to expand the 15 MGD station to a 50 MGD station, thereby reducing overflow events.

VS InvolvementVS completed the study, prepared the preliminary engineering report and assisted with SRF funding and documentation requirements. The final design submitted by VS incorporated desired changes such as intercepting the influent sewer and diverting flows to a screening and grit removal facility prior to conveyance to the modified station.
