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.
Design and construction of green stormwater infrastructure to manage approximately 17-23 acres of impervious area located in Lower Paxton Creek Planning Area/Uptown Planning Area/Lower Front Planning Area.
Project design will be funded by PayGo.
The project construction will be financed by a PENNVEST low-interest loan
