Warfield Relief Sewer

Fort Wayne, Indiana

The relief sewer was constructed to reduce/eliminate surcharge flows from the City of Fort Wayne’s City Utilities Department existing Warfield Relief Interceptor. The Environmental Protection Agency deemed that elimination of these overflows is an “early action project” as part of the City’s Consent Decree with EPA to eliminate or minimize such overflows throughout the City of Fort Wayne. As such, this became a fast-track project in order to meet the construction schedule mandated in Fort Wayne’s consent decree that includes approximately $240 million in projects to be completed over a 20-year period. The design of this project presented several challenges including determination of the route of the 6,000-lft interceptor.
