LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE BLOOMFIELD ORCHARDS FOOTING DRAIN DISCONNECTION PROGRAM IN THE CITY OFAUBURN HILLS
Abstract:The Bloomfield Orchards subdivision is located in the southwest quarter the City of Auburn Hills. The subdivision is in the north end of the Evergreen-Farmington Sewage Disposal System (EFSDS) and contains 532 single-family residential homes. The Footing Drain Program was a multi-phased, City-funded project in an effort to eliminate the primary sources of inflow from the sanitary sewer system. The ultimate goal of the project was to improve the quality of life for residents of the Bloomfield Orchards, City of Auburn Hills and downstream Evergreen- Farmington communities by removing wet weather flows and decreasing the potential for basement back-ups and system overflows. Since completion, sanitary sewer related basement flooding has been eliminated, improving the health and welfare of all residents involved. Metering analysis indicates that the excess flows havebeen eliminated from the system and that the City should be well within their Town Outlet Capacity.
