The City of Springfield entered into an Amended Consent Judgment (ACJ) with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) in May of 2012 in accordance with the Clean Water Act. According to the ACJ, the City began implementing a city-wide Overflow Control Plan (OCP) to reduce sanitary sewer overflows. The OCP includes both a public sewer rehabilitation program as well as a private sewer rehabilitation program to help reduce sanitary sewer overflows. The public sewer rehabilitation projects are known as “group” projects. The City has implemented groups one through six of the public sewer rehabilitation program outlined in the OCP and is ready for group seven.

Group seven projects will require contracting for different types of public sanitary sewer rehabilitation including:

  • Cleaning, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) and Cured in Place Pipe lining (CIPP) of sewer mains.
  • Open-cut repair and/or rehabilitation of defects found in sewer mains and lateral connections
  • Trenchless repair and/or rehabilitation of defects found in lateral connections
  • Manhole rehabilitation
  • Grouting sewer main joints, manholes and later connections
  • Pipe bursting
