Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District

Project Description

The Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) employed The Corradino Group to complete the design of replacement sanitary sewers for an area in Louisville known as Camp Taylor. It is served by sanitary sewers that date back to the early 1900's when lines were constructed to serve the US Army training camp located there. After the camp was no longer needed, residential development took place with little thought to the existing or future alignment of sewers. This resulted in having sewers under buildings, multiple sewers crossing some properties, and undersized lines being forced to carry more flow than they can handle.

During the pre-design phase, Corradino worked directly with Camp Taylor residents and businesses to conduct in-home plumbing surveys. The project then focused on: design of a new sewer system in public rights-of-way (ROW); engineering of abandoned existing sewers; design of drainage improvements within ROWs; and, restoration of impacted areas. This project is required by MSD's consent order with U.S. EPA which is designed to reduce and eliminate sanitary sewer overflows (SSO's) and back-ups into homes and businesses.
