A brief description of the services sought:
CSO 541 Outfall Replacement - This project will replace the outfall pipe and install a new headwall on the riverbank. The outfall pipe is approximately 150 feet of 36-inch sewer that runs from MH 15701004 to MH 15701030 and crosses under two sets of railroad tracks with a manhole in between (MH 15701002). This project is located near 5718 River Road in the Riverside neighborhood of the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio in the River Road watershed of the Muddy Creek treatment basin.
Rapid Run and Foley Road PS Receiver Manhole Installation - The project will install new receiver manholes with grit pits immediately upstream of the Rapid Run and Foley Road Pump Stations on the existing sewer. Receiver manholes are used for bypass pumping around the pump station during maintenance activities, and neither of the pump stations have one currently. The new manholes would increase maintainability and reduce pollutant discharge. The project is located in the River Road watershed of the Muddy Creek basin, in the Riverside neighborhood of the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County.
