Wet Well Wonder In A Deep Sewer Tunnel

This wet well is a critical piece of a system designed to intercept wet weather overflows, and it demands powerful, high-quality pumps to handle the load. Designed to reduce environmental impacts resulting from Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) in Columbus, Ohio, the Olentangy-Scioto- Interceptor-Sewer Augmentation Relief Sewer (OARS) is the key component in meeting this goal. This sewer tunnel will intercept wet weather overflows that currently empty into the Scioto River and instead carry the flows to the city’s Jackson Pike and Southerly wastewater treatment plants.
