Blueprint Near South Lining Project

This project (CIP 650875-122190) will rehabilitate existing sanitary sewer mains and associated manholes in the Blueprint Near South project area(PDF, 242KB) . It is located within the South Side planning area and is generally bounded by Markison Avenue on the north, Wall Street on the west, Refugee Road on the south, and Fairwood Avenue on the east.

The goal of this project is to reduce the amount of inflow and infiltration of non-sewerage waters to the sanitary sewer system thereby reducing occurrences of water in basements and sewerage overflows to area streams and rivers.

The project includes over 85,000 linear feet of 8-inch to 33-inch sewers and 440 manholes. The sewers will be rehabilitated using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) methods and the manholes will be rehabilitated with a cementitious liner. Construction is expected to begin in winter 2020.

Area residents will receive notifications prior to the work being performed. The notifications will give information on timing of the work, contact information and a request to restrict water usage for the short time (8-10 hours) while sewer main is being CIPP lined.

Financing for this project is being provided through a below market-rate loan through the OEPA's Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program. Prior to granting this loan, the Ohio EPA required a detailed submittal from the Division of Sewerage and Drainage to determine the project's eligibility.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. View the LER and the letter(PDF, 441KB)  of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies."
