  1. Northern Boone County Sewer Service Business Case Evaluation
    The SD1 Board awarded a contract for a Northern Boone County Sewer Service Business Case Evaluation to Tetra Tech in the amount submitted with its bid. The evaluation will serve as a guide for the expansion and extension of SD1’s sanitary sewer system in the area to meet the Clean H2O40 Amended Consent Decree requirements and investigate alternatives for serving future growth in northern Boone County as identified in the priority rankings.

    This evaluative study exemplifies SD1’s approach to procuring the most cost-effective solution to increasing capacity while meeting Clean H2O40 metrics.

    SD1 Goals Achieved: Financial Viability, Optimal Infrastructure Management

  2. W6 Force Main with KYTC KY-536 Project (Phase 1A) – Construction

    The SD1 Board entered into a betterment agreement in the amount of $1,855,102 with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) for the construction of the W6 force main. Working in conjunction with KYTC ‘s road improvement project on KY 536, the new force main will eliminate SSOs in the area, which complies with the Clean H2O40 ACD.

    The project supports Clean H2O40, MS4 regulatory requirements and will support economic growth in that area by increasing the conveyance capacity while eliminating potential SSOs.

  3. W6 Pump Station (Phase III) - Design

    The project is directly aligned with SD1 organizational strategic goals, objectives, and strategies. Upon completion of all phases of the W6 project the capacity of the conveyance system in this area will be increased to avoid SSOs in the two-year, six-hour storm event, will provide infrastructure consistent with and necessary for compliance with Clean H2O40 ACD requirements and will meet the financial goals of SD1 meeting the forecasted budget.

  4. Reservation of Sanitary Sewer Capacity Requests

This process benefits the communities served by SD1 by providing planning tools for economic vitality.
