SD1 seeks public input on route for a possible new sewer pipe in Campbell County
FORT WRIGHT – SD1 is considering several options for a proposed sanitary sewer improvement project that would repair a defective pipe. The improvement would add capacity to the sewer system, allow for future growth in Campbell County, and reduce wet-weather sewer overflows.
In each of four different alternatives under consideration, the majority of the work would occur in the U.S. Route 27 and AA Highway corridor. Each option would also include upgrades to several of SD1’s Pump Station; thousands of feet of new sanitary sewer force main and gravity sewer pipes; and potentially two new pump stations, depending on the alternative selected. The flow from these facilities would go to the Eastern Regional Water Reclamation Facility in Alexandria for treatment before it is released into the environment as clean water.
The four options currently being considered explore different routes and locations for the proposed sewer system and pump stations. One proposed route would turn the now privately-owned Rocky View package treatment plant into a public SD1 pump station. If this option is selected and the project moves to construction, the residents and businesses whose wastewater flows to this plant would become SD1 ratepayers.
Before an alternative is selected and design work begins, SD1 and the cities of Cold Spring and Alexandria are seeking input from nearby residents and businesses. More information about the project, including maps of the proposed routes, is available on SD1’s website at www.sd1.org/US27AAHW.
SD1 also will hold a public open house about the project on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Alexandria Community Center at 8236 West Main Street in Alexandria, KY. SD1 representatives will be available at the open house to answer questions and listen to feedback about the project and proposed routes.
Those who are unable to attend the open house may provide feedback or ask questions by emailing US27AAProject@sd1.org.
“SD1 is committed to protecting public health and the environment and supporting the economic vitality of the community by providing safe and reliable wastewater and storm water services. Strategic improvement projects like this one ensure we have the infrastructure needed to make both our daily routines and community progress possible,” said Adam Chaney, SD1’s executive director. “We want to keep our customers in focus as we work to fulfill that mission, and hearing from our customers about this project will help us do that.”
“As essential as sanitation service is to the development future of this area, everyone with constructive input needs to be heard. Please join us at the open house,” said Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery.
SD1 is responsible for the collection and treatment of Northern Kentucky’s wastewater, as well as regional storm water management. SD1 is the second largest public sewer utility in Kentucky, serving about 290,000 residents throughout Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties.
SD1 maintains approximately 1,620 miles of sanitary sewer system pipeline, 120 wastewater pumping stations, 15 flood pump stations, seven package treatment plants, three major wastewater treatment plants, 450 miles of storm sewer system and 33,000 storm sewer structures.
Hello and welcome to Alexandria!
Alexandria is a great place to live, work, or shop. We’re just about 30 minutes from downtown Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky International Airport, less than that to great shopping, either at regional malls or our own Village Green Shopping Center. Of course, Alexandria has dozens of specialty retailers and good restaurants as well.
Our school systems, both public and private, are among the best. We’re just 15 minutes from Northern Kentucky University and within easy commuting distance of the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, and Thomas More College, just to name a few of the educational opportunities.
And with all of that going for us, perhaps the best and most amazing thing is we’re still enjoying a laid back, almost rural community with friendly neighbors and beautiful vistas.
Our tag line “Where the City meets the Country” is not just a slogan. It really captures the idea that we have every amenity available to us, but we can escape to the peace and quiet just by coming home.
