The City of Fayetteville, Arkansas is home to the University of Arkansas and is located in one of the fastest growing regions of the country. The growth along with Infiltration/Inflow (I/I) placed a burden on the wastewater collection and treatment facilities. This paper will discuss the methods that were used in planning for capacity improvements for the facilities and how the constructed improvements responded to an actual storm event closely resembling the design storm. The paper will also discuss how the City reduced I/I entering the system to offset the increase in flow from an ever increasing population during the 10-year plus planning, design, construction period.
