Lower Howards Creek Discharge

The Lower Howards Creek WWTP was a Consent Decree project with a completion deadline of January 31, 2013 (elimination of SSOs).  The project was expected to eliminate 13 recurring sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) in the Lower Howards Creek Watershed and 13 of the documented 27 system-wide recurring SSOs.  Palmer Engineering Company (PEC) was the Engineer of Record.  The Contractor (Smith Contractors) has completed work associated with finalizing the construction contract.  The project was formally accepted by the WMU Commission at the January 2, 2014 regular meeting of the WMUC.  Staff will continue to closely monitor operation of the plant and constructed infrastructure during the warranty phase for timely reporting to the engineer of record and contractor.
