Indianapolis, IN (June 24, 2016) — Citizens Energy Group (CEG) hosted a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the Eagle Creek Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Reduction project which was included as part of an agreement between CEG, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). The agreement, referred to as the CSO Consent Decree, includes the execution of a Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) which is expected to minimize the overflow of raw sewage from combined sewers into local waterways.
United Consulting served as the design engineer for the Eagle Creek CSO Reduction Project. United was responsible for the design of consolidation sewers, diversion structures, drop shaft connections to the deep tunnel, screen and gate structures, and system controls. Ross Claypool Park improvements were also incorporated into the project, including a new basketball court, parking lot, and walking trail.
