Sewer Separation Project located in Fulton Hill area of the City CSO 028E

Project Summary and Scope

This project is a requirement of the CSO Special Order by Consent between the City and the Virginia State Water Control Board.  The Project is one of two remaining separation projects in the CSO 028 Sewer Shed. This project includes the installation of some separate stormwater collection pipe, installation of some sanitary sewer pipe, the abandonment of a 30” combined sewer pipe in an easement on private property, and the deactivation of the downstream sewer regulator. This separation project will reduce the amount of combined sewer overflows in this area of the City thereby improving the water quality of the James River.
