Continue investment in sewer collection system to reduce Inflow/Infiltration (I/I) that improves water quality and reduces energy usage.
The City will continue to invest in a collection system that reduces the overall I/I. Inflow refers to the amount of storm water conveyed via pipes and infiltration refers to the amount of water that seeps into these pipes during storm events. The reduction in I/I will reduce wet weather Sanitary Sewer Overflows and help improve the resilience of wastewater treatment plants, lift stations, and the overall collection system during major storm events. The investment can be in the form of sanitary sewer evaluation studies, point repairs and pipe replacement, CCTV inspection of large diameter pipes along major waterways.
