Successful Implementation of a Comprehensive Private Sewer Lateral Program: Lessons from the Trenches
Communities across the U.S. are struggling to reduce wet weather flows in order to decrease Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) discharges. Since a potentially significant portion of wet weather flows originate from private sewer laterals (PSLs), communities are increasingly looking to implement programs that address private property. This paper reviews lessons learned from East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD)'s first year of implementing a point-of-sale PSL ordinance and a 2 million/year PSL rebate program. The information gleaned from implementation of these broad, Federally-mandated private property programs provides valuable guidance for other wastewater agencies contemplating PSL programs.
