CASE STUDY:
Keeping Lake Erie Clean

Location
Cleveland, Ohio

Application
Wastewater

Contractor
Shook Walbridge Joint Venture

When heavy rains fall in Northern Ohio, the increased flow through sewers sometimes caused overflow of the combined storm water and wastewater into area waterways and Lake Erie. The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) initiated a number of projects with the aim of addressing this pollution. The project, which has been ongoing for a number of years under the guidance of Brown and Caldwell and MWH Global, consists of several phases and is planned to continue at least until 2019. Included in the overall project is the expansion of the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The use of Flowtite® FRP pipes and fittings led to a number of significant savings for the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District.
