Capacity, condition and criticality are evaluated for the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District's wastewater collection system. The system includes a network of 17 regional pumping stations, 29 miles of forcemains, and 93 miles of gravity interceptor sewers. The methodology and results of the District's collection system facilities plan are reviewed. Resulting projects include a 20-year investment of 84 million in year 2000 dollars. Results of the first 5-year period of construction are discussed, including the rehabilitation of three large central pumping stations and an interconnecting cross-town forcemain that allows for added system robustness and the flexibility for flow diversions during emergencies or high flow events.
