Lower Richland Creek Interceptor Upgrade

Approximately 5,600 feet of gravity sewer will replace the existing Richland Creek Outfall and sections of the Neuse River Interceptor. The sewer will follow the alignment of the existing sewer along Richland Creek and the south bank of the Neuse River. This project will include 1,240 feet of 30-inch, 2,750 feet of 36-inch, and 3,780 feet of 42-inch of gravity sewer line. The project will need one major road crossing at New Falls of Neuse Road.

Planning

  • The preliminary design phase will analyze the existing conditions and proposed improvements to select a route for the proposed interceptor capacity upgrade.
  • Property owners in the route area will be notified prior to survey and other route activites.
  • Once a route is selected, the engineer will finalize the design to prepare for the permitting process and, if needed, easement acquisition.

History

 

  • This project was originally planned for 2013.
  • The planning, design, and construction were pushed back to the 2021‐2025 planning period to allow for the construction of higher priority projects in earlier planning years.
  • The existing sewer is not adequately sized to carry wet weather flows. Back up from the limited capacity in the sewers upstream of the project area causes overflows during wet weather. A system model predicted an overflow during a strong storm at one manhole in the base year. The rim elevation of the manhole that overflowed is more than five feet lower than the surrounding manholes. The manhole should be sealed to reduce the risks of Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO).
