More than 17,000 homes in Marion County are served by private septic systems. Septic systems have a limited life and eventually fail, seeping human waste into groundwater, backyards and neighborhood ditches and streams. To address health hazards in the neighborhoods, Citizens Energy Group is continuing the City of Indianapolis’ efforts to convert many neighborhoods on septic systems to the sanitary sewer system.
7NT is tasked with the design of Low-Pressure Systems (LPS) in these neighborhoods to capture sanitary flow and convey to interceptors. LPS require a pumping unit (i.e. grinder pump) at each property, laterals, control/alarm box on the house to alert property owner of any issues and a valve pit.
The scope of work includes:
7NT Project Managers are responsible for the integrity of the design along with ensuring schedule milestone assurance. As part of this project, the PM also supports Client’s effort to conduct community outreach.
