Driftwood Equalization Facility

Completed November 2013

This project increased the storage capacity of the existing Driftwood facility by 3.2 million gallons and corrected operational electrical defects at the site. Through these improvements, the storage facility is now able to capture the additional flow generated from most rainfall events, preventing the release of combined sewage to the Cumberland River.
