2023-2024 Construction




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. Planning-area-specific CSO control targets were established for the three planning areas (Uptown, Lower Front, and Lower Paxton Creek) where baseline controls are less effective at reducing CSOs. The 2020-2021 planning effort is identifying high ranking GSI projects to design and construct with PENNVEST Stormwater Programmatic Financing.

Project Purpose:

The 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. Phase 4 planning will capture and manage stormwater in green stormwater elements designed to also serve as community beautification, recreational uses, and traffic calming elements.

Project Summary:

Design and construction of green stormwater infrastructure to manage approximately 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.
