South Recreation Complex Stormwater Improvements Project

Construction for the South Recreation Complex Stormwater Project is starting.

This project is a demonstration project funded by an Ohio EPA Stormwater Improvement Fund (SWIF) grant.  The City received this grant in late 2012 for the construction of a bioretention stormwater demonstration project at the Municipal Complex. 

Four large bioretention cells will be created along existing parking lots at the City's South Recreation Complex, located off of Starr Extension.  Bioretention Cells are an innovative stormwater improvement that combines water quality benefits as well as runoff reduction into a stormwater best management practice (BMP).  The bioretention cells will be planted with native Ohio plants and grasses that help initiate processes that remove pollutants from parking lot runoff.  The cells will also help to reduce parking lot runoff by facilitating infiltration of stormwater through the soil profile during rain events.  These systems will benefit Wolf Creek by improving the water quality discharged to the creek from the site, as well as, reducing flow volumes from the parking lots. 

Construction of the bioretention cells will consist of excavating the existing clay soils and replacing them with an engineered soil mix made from 70% sand, 15% compost, and 15% topsoil.  The sand facilitates the movement of stormwater down into and through the soilmix.  Also, underdrain piping and a filter layer will be installed underneath the soilmix to allow for drainage during large rain events. 

Following construction and planting of the cells, signage will be installed on site to explain the benefits of the innovative stormwater treatment system to passersby. 

See the below cross section drawing of the bioretention cells being constructed.

WWTP Secondary Treatment Improvements - Phase 1 and 2

In accordance to the City of Oregon's Ohio EPA NPDES Permit No. 2PD00035*MD, the City is required to increase the secondary treatment capacity of the WWTP from 24 MGD to 36 MGD to eliminate secondary treatment bypasses and sanitary sewer collection system overflows (SSO's) during wet weather events. In accordance to the Compliance Schedule of the said permit, the project will be constructed in two (2) phases over the next five (5) years.

The Phase 1 project improvements consist of the replacement of two(2) influent screens, replacement of three(3) raw sewage pump motor drives, replacement of two blowers, full replacement of air piping and replacement of air diffusers in the aeration tanks and a dissolved oxygen control system, site restoration, and associated Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) upgrades.

Oregon Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project, Phase 2

The City of Oregon Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Phase 2 Project (Project Information Sheet) consists of replacing existing sanitary sewer lines located within the right of way of Cresceus Road, Mambrino Road, and Grasser Street (between Pickle Road and Dearborn Avenue) The project also includes sanitary sewer lining on Wheeling Street (between Navarre Avenue and Bleeker Street) and Pickle Road (between Grasser Street and Wheeling Street). (See project location map)

The new sanitary sewer replacement or lining will have the same alignment or location as the existing sewer within the public right-of-way. A new sanitary sewer will be installed on Fink Street, between Patchen Road and Cresceus Road, in order to reduce the depth of the sewer replacement on Cresceus Road. All existing sanitary sewer lateral connections within the public right-of-way will also be replaced as part of the project.

Seaman Road Storm Improvement (2012)

The Seaman Road Storm Sewer Improvement Project involves the installation of a new large storm sewer along the north side of Seaman Road from Stadium Road to Clay High School. A new open channel with mounding will connect the new storm sewer to Wolf Creek across from Clay High School along the east property line of city owned property.

The project will provide an overflow path from Wolf Creek to the new Big Ditch storm sewer along Stadium Road north of Seaman Road. The purpose of the project is to provide flood relief during large rain events for properties located along Stadium Road and Seaman Road near Wolf Creek. The new storm sewers and open channels that were installed along Stadium Road as a part of the recent Big Ditch Improvement Project were sized to handle additional flow from Wolf Creek. The existing storm sewer along the south side of Seaman Road will remain in place.
