Topic: Blueprint Columbus

Thursday - 09/17/2015

Spaghetti Warehouse
  397 West Broad St., Columbus, OH 43215

    The Department of Public Utilities is in the process of implementing Blueprint Columbus in targeted neighborhoods to address overflows that occur from the City’s sanitary sewer system during periods of wet weather. Blueprint Columbus focuses on eliminating the source of the problem, which is rain water entering the sanitary sewer. There are four components that make up Blueprint Columbus: lining resident’s sewer lateral, a voluntary sump pump program and redirecting roof water runoff away from the home’s foundation drain. Green infrastructure will be installed on right-of-way property to treat rain water that’s been redirected before it enters the storm sewer system.

Mr. Dax Blake, PE; Administrator, Division of Sewerage and Drainage, City of Columbus
