Interceptor Realignment Project

The Interceptor Realignment Project consists of realigning the existing interceptor that travels through the Right-of-Way parallel to the Mahannon Creek by connecting MH 14 located near Ridge Road into MH 261E at the intersection of Ridge Road and South Liberty Street. This realignment will allow us to abandon the existing interceptor (12-inch) that travels through the Right-of-Way, which has limited access as well as known structural / hydraulic capacity / inflow and infiltration issues.

The proposed interceptor (18-inch diameter) will then travel from the intersection of Ridge Road and South Liberty Street down South Liberty Street towards the Wastewater Treatment Plant. This realignment will then allow us to abandon the existing interceptor (8-inch) that travels down South Liberty Street, which has known hydraulic capacity issues.

Here is a map of the project area.
