Year 2 Service Lateral Program (SLP) work will begin soon on Lookout Mountain.
The Sewer System Evaluation Survey (SSES) investigation has been completed on Lookout Mountain. The purpose of the SSES is to perform an Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) study to locate and reduce storm water entering the sanitary sewer system and perform capacity management for expansion. After extensive review of the sewer system, a rehabilitation plan will be developed, identifying necessary sewer repairs and replacements.
Under the SESS program, various techniques will be performed to detect defects, blockages and capacity problems. These techniques include, smoke testing, Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) evaluations, line cleaning, dye testing, manhole evaluations, and flow monitoring. The SESS program will help the WWTA maintain compliancy with regulations ordinances, consent decrees and/or mandates established by the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
