December 19, 2019: They are digging deep near the intersection of Rudisill and Broadway. The consolidation sewer will take the flow from two pipes that currently dump into the St. Marys River when it rains and drop that flow down to the tunnel. Scroll below graphic to see December photos.
Project Information: The Rudisill Consolidation Sewer is a near-surface sewer that will capture combined sewer overflow and convey it to the Three Rivers Protection and Overflow Reduction Tunnel (3RPORT). The existing sewer pipes are below grade at the intersection of Rudisill and Broadway. Currently, two combined sewers that carry both sewage and stormwater dump an average of 392 million gallons of combined sewage into the St. Marys River per year. The consolidation sewer will divert the flow from the two pipes and transport it to a drop shaft that will connect it to the 3RPORT.
Estimated Completion Date: Spring 2021
Contractor: FA Wilhelm Construction Inc.
Project Investment: $6,000,000
