AWR! Begins Work on Carpenter Sewer Separation (CSO Rack 30) Project


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Ellen Lander Nischt, Press Secretary
Published: 07-07-2017

Akron, Ohio, July 7, 2017 — Last month, Akron Waterways Renewed! (AWR!) began work on Cuyahoga Street for the Carpenter Sewer Separation (CSO Rack 30) project. This $2.3 million Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-mandated project, which will eliminate combined sewer overflows in this area, will continue until November 2017.

The separation involves constructing new storm and sanitary sewers, along with lining portions of the existing sewer. The sanitary sewer will flow to the Little Cuyahoga Interceptor (LCI), and eventually the Akron Water Reclamation Facility, where it will be treated. The new storm sewer will carry storm water directly to the Little Cuyahoga River.

The project will result in 4,000 feet of new sewer, and 3,000 feet of sewer lining. Kenmore Construction Company has been chosen to complete the work.

The Rack 30 area separates the sewers in the neighborhood west of Howard Avenue and includes Burns Avenue, Salome Avenue, Mildred Avenue, and Carpenter Street.

Traffic alerts related to the project will be posted online at
