The City entered into a contract with V&A Consulting Engineers and Black & Veatch consultants on February 20, 20 and have begun a 2-year sewer master plan project. The objectives of the project are to repair aged sanitary sewer infrastructures (mainly pipes and maintenance holes) and to reduce stormwater intrusion and sanitary sewer overflows to protect public health. Upon completion, the project will produce a comprehensive Sanitary Sewer Master Plan that will meet both federal and state regulatory requirements. The master plan will provide technical guidance to both the sanitary sewer rehabilitation capital improvement program (CIP) and the sanitary sewer operation and maintenance program (O&M) in compliance with the 2014 Consent Decree for the next 17 years. The master plan project incorporates equity factors into the prioritization plan, applies risk-based analytical approach while mitigating inflow/infiltration issues effectively and efficiently, and updates the sewer hydraulic model from large to small diameter pipes. Innovyze's InfoAsset Planner will be used to develop an asset prioritization plan. InfoSWMM will be used to update the sewer hydraulic model.
