Ewing Creek - Brick Church Equalization Facility

Completed June 2019

This project consists of the construction of a 10.6 million gallon pre-stressed concrete tank and an 18 millon gallons per day pump station. The storage tank is utilized when sewer flows exceed the capacity of the existing sewer system. The peak flows are stored until the flows in the system recede, and the stored volume can be conveyed through the system to treatment. Without the construction of this facility, flows in excess of the system capacity resulted in sanitary sewer overflows.
