Final Report Floyds Fork Comprehensive Watershed Based Plan

The purpose of the project was to create a watershed-based plan for the Floyds Fork watershed to restore and protect designated uses in the watershed. Funding was provided in part by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) through the Kentucky Division of Water, Nonpoint Source Section, to Kentucky Waterways Alliance, Inc. (as authorized by the Clean Water Act Amendments of 1987, §319(h) Nonpoint Source Implementation Grant #C9994861-03). There was widespread engagement in the project (about 50 people were solidly engaged, and hundreds were supportive and assisted in some way). The Steering Committee and project partners assembled an extensive library of materials and conducted a successful Roundtable. A Technical Advisory Committee analyzed existing watershed data and conducted watershed assessments. A Land Use Committee analyzed local land use and land use policies and practices. The WBP was ultimately left incomplete, but the WBP Final Report documents project progress and accomplishments and focuses on the process and lessons learned during the effort.

Penn Run Sewer Study (December 2008)
The wastewater conveyance infrastructure and pumping system in the Penn Run watershed, or Zone I, was evaluated for options. The conclusions from the study can be summarized into the following four points.
1. The existing Mount Washington Road Pumping Station cannot pump to the Charleswood Interceptor beyond its current capacity unless the force main is increased to a 10-inch-diameter pipe.
2. The existing pumps at the Mount Washington Road Pumping Station can be used to serve initial and anticipated ultimate population flows by changing the impellers.
3. The Admiral Drive Pumping Station can handle peak dry weather flow from the Mount Washington Road Pumping Station; however, wet weather flows could exceed pumping station capabilities.
4. There are several reaches of the Fishpool Interceptor that have restricted capacities as a result of the sewer being installed at a slope less than design. Recommendations from the plan include moving forward with Alternative 1 (divert flow from the Mount Washington Road Pumping Station to the Admiral Drive Pumping Station) and Alternative 3 (reconstruct restricted portions of the Admiral Reach of the Fishpool Interceptor to restore the intended design capacity). Flow monitoring within the Fishpool Interceptor is also recommended.

Integrated Overflow Abatement Plan (December 2008)

An Integrated Overflow Abatement Plan (IOAP) was prepared by MSD in response to its Consent Decree and Amended Consent Decree with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the Kentucky Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet. MSD’s IOAP is a long-term plan to control combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). There are three volumes to the IOAP; Volume 1 is the Integrated Overflow Abatement Plan, Volume 2 is the Final Combined Sewer Overflow Long-Term Control Plan (LTCP), and Volume 3 is the Final Sanitary Sewer Discharge Plan (SSDP). Volume 1 describes the programmatic measures and community participation in the planning process. Volume 2 LTCP describes MSD’s approach to minimize CSOs. Volume 3 (SSDP) describes SSO minimization and recommended projects. USEPA and KDOW approved the IOAP on October 23, 2009. The IOAP is included by reference in the Amended Consent Decree as a result of the Federal Court Order entered on February 15, 2010. Several projects in this Action Plan Update were defined in the SSDP portion of the IOAP.
