LSSE was retained after repeated attempts by prior engineers failed to provide an LTCP compliance program that was acceptable to PADEP. LSSE first assisted the Borough in negotiating an acceptable Consent Order including a reduction in assessed penalties. LSSE followed with a work plan for CSO Policy/NPDES Compliance including documentation and implementation of the nine minimum controls (NMC), system inventory and characterization (SIC), mapping, system hydraulic characterization (SHC) and development of an LTCP. This plan was accepted by the Borough and approved by DEP without exception. The system includes an interceptor along the Youghiogheny River with thirteen (13) CSOs, pumping facilities, and a WWTP.
LSSE performed the flow monitoring and SWMM modeling to determine system capacity and overflow characteristics.
LSSE prepared and submitted the LTCP that was approved by PADEP in December of 2009. This project, completed in 2013, has eliminated river backflow into the system, resulting in significantly reduced flow to the treatment facilities.
