Sanitary Sewer Manhole Rehabilitation
CIP No.SA0901

Water Plant Lagoon Modifications
CIP No. WS1201

The project is to construct three existing, single-stage sludge lagoons into a two-stage lagoon system. Two of the existing earthen lagoons will be combined into one large concrete lagoon for primary settlement and detention of solids, and the third lagoon will be used for final settlement. Existing lagoons are undersized and incapable of properly handling filter backwash and clarifier blowdown waters. Solids content of the efflutent discharged into the receiving stream needs to be reduced. Combining two of the lagoons by removing the earthen berm and increasing the depth by two feet will expand the total storage capacity from 170,000 gallons to 400,000 gallons. Increased detention time will improve settlement of solids as well as allow more time for chlorine to dissipate naturally,which will reduce the amount of chemical needed for chlorine removal.

Sanitary Sewer Inflow and Infilitration Study
CIP No. SA1301

Each year the City selects a portion of its collection system for sewer inspection to identify defects in the collection system that may be contributing to excess inflow/infiltration (I/I) and flooding.

For this phase, (Phase 3) of the SSES, RJN will be investigating nine sub-basins comprised of 172,500 linear feet of pipe and 758 manholes. The investigations that RJN are performing include manhole inspections, smoke testing, dye testing, and map updates. Segments that need cleaning will be identified, along with areas where dyed water flooding and closed-circuit television (CCTV) are necessary to confirm pipe defects. From the findings of the investigations, the City will develop a budget for the following year to rehabilitate defective structures and pipes. The project is set to be completed by April of 2015.

RJN Group, Inc. began work on Phase Three of a Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Survey (SSES) for the City of Carbondale, Illinois.
