    Workshop A Agenda (PDF)

    Workshop A: When Good Water’s Gone Bad, The Sequel: In Association with MOP FD-17 Prevention and Control of Sewer Systems Overflows
    Sunday, June 3, 2012 | 1:30pm – 5:30pm

    This half-day workshop will focus on case studies coupled with an hour long breakout session where attendees will attempt to apply the lessons to solve an example CSO/SSO problem. The interactive discussions, case studies, and hands-on problem solving, attendees will develop practical knowledge that will serve them as a guide in developing long term control plans for CSO’s and overflow mitigation plans for SSO’s.

    Tour A: Follow the Flow - Inflow/Infiltration
    Tuesday, June 5, 2012 | 12:00pm – 3:45pm

    Attendees will take a tour to view the process of identifying system defects through Sanitary System Evaluation Surveys investigations and the removal of these defects through the use of cured-in-place liners and downspout removal. (Lunch will be provided)

    Tour B: Sanitary Sewer Overflow Storage Facility
    Wednesday, June 6, 2012 | 12:15pm – 2:45pm

    The Coldwater Tank Site A is the first of two proposed above ground storage tanks to be constructed in the Coldwater Creek watershed. This tank will provide approximately 6 million gallons of storage during wet weather to mitigate sanitary sewer overflows. The two proposed tanks will be constructed instead of replacing 9 miles of 36-72 inch diameter sanitary sewers. The above ground storage will be a 45-feet tall, 180-feet diameter tank which will fill with the use of a pump station and will drain by gravity back into the sanitary system. (Includes transportation to the airport)
