Richmond, Virginia is embarked on a systematic rehabilitation of its 1500 mile sanitary sewer collection system, parts of which date back to the mid-1800s. Aging infrastructure, regulatory requirements for overflow mitigation and new accounting requirements (under GASB 34) are all drivers
for this rehabilitation program. The roadmap for this rehabilitation program is a Collection System Master Plan. This paper describes how the Richmond Collection System Master Plan addresses the drivers listed above and shows the benefits that Richmond derives. The approaches presented in
this paper are fully transferable to other municipal collection systems.
