Location

Lower Paxton Creek, Uptown, and Lower Front

Schedule

2021

Background:

CRW is employing decentralized green/grey stormwater control infrastructure to manage stormwater runoff and prevent flows from entering the combined sewer system, thereby reducing combined sewer overflow (CSO) activity

The 2020-2021 planning effort is focused on the wet weather control within the three Priority Planning Areas identified in the alternative evaluation in Section 8 of the City Beautiful H2O Program Plan. Planning-area-specific CSO control targets are established for the three planning areas (Uptown, Lower Front, and Lower Paxton Creek) where baseline controls are less effective at reducing CSOs.

Project Purpose:

Lower Paxton Creek CSS Planning Area Plan will provide a long-range strategy for GSI implementation within the priority planning area, as well as be used to identify and rank the highest priority GSI and “grey” storage and/or treatment projects to move forward into construction under Programmatic Financing through PENNVEST over the next five years.   Project Summary: Project will be financed from 2017 series bonds/cash.   Construction of projects conceptually designed by this planning effort will be funded by a PENNVEST low-interest loan.
