Presentation Title: Davenport, Iowa 14th District Diversion Study
Date: Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Time: 11:15 AM
Presenters: Karol Giokas, P.E., Project Manager, RJN, and Tom Leabhart, P.E., Chief of Design, City of Davenport

Description: The 14th District sanitary sewer basin in Davenport, Iowa, has high levels of inflow and infiltration (I/I), resulting in sanitary sewer overflows and basement backups. When the West Side Tunnel came online in 2013, much of the flow that previously was tributary to the south Duck Creek interceptor was diverted to the tunnel. This resulted in the south Duck Creek interceptor having additional capacity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate ways to reduce the occurrence of overflows and basement backups in the 14th District area by utilizing that potential excess capacity in the south Duck Creek interceptor. Different diversion options were evaluated along with different levels of flow reduction to come up with a recommended option for the city to reduce basement backups and overflows.

RJN will be exhibiting during the conference at Booth #205.
