The Role of Community Interaction in Sewer System Improvement Planning
Author: Chase Laurie Mehl, Cynthia Wurm, Roger K. Jacobsen
Date: 10/99
Presented at WEFTEC 99 in New Orleans, LA.

The City of Columbus, Ohio has undertaken an aggressive Inflow and Infiltration (I/I) Remediation Program to eliminate designed sanitary sewer overflows, reduce water-in-basement occurrences and mitigate flooding problem areas. One of the first capital improvement projects undertaken is located in the Clintonville neighborhood, an older, predominately residential neighborhood consisting of many socioeconomic levels. Many in the neighborhood believe that the City's accelerated suburban growth and associated need for new sewer facilities is overshadowing the needs of the established and aging urban neighborhood infrastructures.
