combined sewer separation
Many older commercial buildings tied their storm sewer system to their sanitary sewer system. From day one this installation caused undue stress on the sanitary laterals, mains, lift stations, lagoons, and treatment plants. Excessive water that does not need to be treated will overflow an undersized system that is incapable of conveying the additional storm water. Separating these systems is being mandated from city-to-city to reduce the stress placed on the sanitary system during peak rain events. We can separate these systems, sending storm water to its respective inlet.
