The Clean Water Atlanta sewer system improvement program is one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind in the U.S. The program received its mandate from the Consent Decree (concerning the combined system) and the First Amended Consent Decree (concerning the sanitary system) which require that the City of Atlanta perform improvements to the approximately 1900 miles of sanitary and combined sewer collection system. The main objectives of the consent decrees are the reduction of the frequency of combined sewer overflows and the elimination of the capacity and maintenance related sanitary sewer overflows. The total cost of the program is expected to exceed $2 billion, of which approximately $900 million is budgeted for SSES, rehabilitation, sewer cleaning and flow monitoring. The focus of this paper is the QA/QC process followed in SSES and Rehabilitation & Replacement Design.
