Long-Term Overflow Control Plan 2015 The Long-Term Overflow Control Plan (OCP) will continue the City's program to address the sanitary sewer overflows and make much needed improvements to the aging sewer system. The Plan outlines investments in the sanitary sewer system for the next 10 years with a total cost of $200 million dollars. The goals of the OCP include safeguarding public health, meeting state/federal regulations, and supporting future development/redevelopment in an affordable manner for our community.
The Long-Term Overflow Control Plan includes the following improvements:
Continued rehabilitation of aging pipes
Expansion of the private sewer repair program to address I/I from private sources
Upgrades on treatment facilities, including energy efficiency
Targeted projects to reduce sanitary sewer overflows
Increase sewer maintenance staffing
Continued monitoring of system performance
Continued public outreach and education
Multiple repair and rehabilitation techniques have been used within the City, through a combination of in-house and contracted work.
Repair techniques include:
