Inflow & Infiltration (I&I) Plan: Lining Project 10,000 (Main Line/Lateral Line)
Percent Complete: 100%
Start Date: 10/01/2019
End Date: 09/30/2020
The City will continue repairs of vitrified clay sanitary sewer lines that may be cracked or damaged, allowing rain and ground water to seep in (infiltrate). Water that enters the sewer system travels to a Broward County wastewater treatment facility where charges are incurred for treating the additional ground water, thus increasing our wastewater treatment costs paid to Broward County. The highest infiltration flows are observed following significant storm events or following prolonged periods of precipitation. Generally, the work includes joint grouting, relining of defective or cracked main line and structural defective segments of the sewer lines. Structural defects can cause collapsed pipes and interrupt service to our residents.
The Inflow & Infiltration Reduction Program was recommended as a high priority in the 2013 Water & Wastewater Master Plan. This program allows the City to maintain their current wastewater transmission and treatment capacity allocations with Broward County. (9.79MGD). This program is funded through the Water & Wastewater Fund. The city has spent $5M in the last 5 years and is budgeted to spend $5M in the next 5 years to continue the masterplan. The city’s current Inflow & Infiltration plan was presented to the Commission at a February workshop.
