Sanitary Interceptor Sewer - Town of Schererville, IN

The Town of Schererville identified an existing shortfall in sanitary sewer capacity in the southeast portion of town. This coupled with an anticipated demand for ever greater capacity due to land development projections prompted a study to examine potential solutions. The result of this study was a framework for a new sewer design using former Rail Road Rights-of-Way, obtaining utility easements through private land and using Public Road Rights-of-Way.

Legal descriptions were prepared for 25 parcels needed to complete the sewer installation. The final product of the design is a 4.5 mile gravity sanitary interceptor sewer ranging in size from 24" to 42" and encompassing over 100' of elevation change. The sewer route is generally from the Schererville Waste Water Treatment Plant southeasterly along the current and former Norfolk Southern Rail Road Right-of-Way, through Schererville Heights. The project is sized to provide service to almost 6 square miles of currently unserved land within the Schererville Utility District. Construction is anticipated to commence in the summer of 2008 with completion expected in the fall of 2009.

In addition to the design of the sewer NIES Engineering prepared legal descriptions for 25 parcels needed to complete the sewer installation.
