Atlanta’s Smart Choice for Sewer Rehabilitation and Pipelining

Cities in Georgia, including Atlanta and surrounding suburbs, are working toward a better future for the underground sewer system.

Because of this, the best method of rehabilitation is the Cured-in-Place Pipelining (CIPP) method of relining the water systems. Several upcoming sewer projects were designed with efficiency, as well as time management, in mind. Damaged and under-performing pipelines are also a consideration for DeKalb County.

Atlanta’s MO for Optimum Stormwater Management

The city of Atlanta has developed a plan to reduce stormwater runoff by up to 225 million gallons annually. With this strategy, stormwater runoff will be managed through a cost-effective grey and green infrastructure design, which will accelerate green space development in urban communities. Green infrastructure infuses elements intended to mimic nature to more effectively manage urban stormwater and reduce flooding, erosion and sewer overflows. In addition to increased capacity reassurance, green infrastructure provides community attributes and buildup. Currently, more than 10 green infrastructure projects are taking place in the city. The layout for this initiative totals approximately $1.06 billion and identifies the essentials for sustaining, restoring and modernizing the facilities and infrastructure at the cornerstone of the water system.

Gainesville Identifies Problematic Issues for Sewer Structure

The city of Gainesville is working to efficiently address the problems arising from aging sewer pipes, and the costly road washouts that have been associated with this.  New state and federal water quality regulations have prompted the need for a self-sustaining fee program to pay for storm water infrastructure upgrades.

There are more than 124 million square feet of impervious surfaces in Gainesville. Impervious surfaces include driveways, parking lots, and any surface that does not allow water to be absorbed into the ground.
