Home Lick Run Valley Conveyance System and Greenway
This project was fully funded by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC) and was designed to provide sustainability as well as economic benefits to the low-income neighbourhood of South Fairmont, through which it runs.
The Lick Run project is one of the largest infrastructure projects for reducing sewer outflows in the U.S. This 1.5-mile corridor serves a 2,700-acre watershed, providing flood control; stormwater conveyance, storage, and reuse; and water quality treatment through an innovative, multi-cell open channel design integrated into a civic park.
Preliminary planning and watershed modelling determined that by opening the Lick Run waterway from its 19-foot-diameter, 120-year-old, brick combined sewer, the MSDGC could save millions of dollars over the traditional deep tunnel conveyance system set out in the initial agreement with the USEPA.
