  1. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  2. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  3. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  4. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!

  5. If the sewer system is designed as a sanitary sewer only and not a combined sanitary and storm water system, then a heavy rain shouldn't be overloading the system. If it does, then somehow the storm water is getting in - such as due to cracks in the sewer lines or downspouts and drains illegally hooked into the system. It sounds like one of the reasons the Clay Township Regional Waste District has lower rates than Carmel is that it isn't spending enough on maintenance to keep storm water out of the system.
