Evaluate conceptual injection well to remove separated stormwater from the CRW combined sewer system.
The Stormwater Injection Well Study is focused on the wet weather control within the Lower Paxton Creek Priority Planning Area identified in the alternative evaluation in Section 8 of the City Beautiful H2O Program Plan. Significant CSO reduction is required for CSO-048 sewershed and stormwater injection well may be a viable/cost-effective method to divert stormwater from the Combined Sewer.
The purpose of the study will be to evaluate a conceptual injection well to remove separated stormwater from the CRW combined sewer system.
Professional Services for study phase to perform exploratory drill to determine site suitability for gravity stormwater injection well(s). CRW will explore sites within the PennDOT I-83 Expansion right-of-way – potential location of suitable permeable karst limestone. The design of gravity stormwater injection well(s) (shallower – approximately 100’ plus deep) would be coordinated with future contract phases of the PennDOT I-83 Expansion.
The project will be funded by PayGo.
