Future WPC Projects
St. Clair Avenue Sewer Relining Project, located on St. Clair Avenue between East 9 Street and West 9 Street in downtown Cleveland. The project consists of relining about 2,200 feet of brick main sewer that is structurally deteriorated. The sewers on St. Clair Avenue were built between 1893 and 1897.
East 176 Sewer Project, located in a wooded area of Kerruish Park, south of 4832 East 176 Street. The project will replace about 105 feet of 8” corrugated sanitary main sewer pipe and 173 feet of storm sewer. The structurally deteriorated sewers cause basement flooding on East 176 Street. The sewers were built in 1957.
Wakefield Ave Sewer Project, located between West 58 Street and West 64 Place. The project will replace about 850 feet of 12” and 15” combined main sewer on Wakefield Avenue. The sewer is structurally deteriorated, causing basement flooding. The combined main sewer was built in 1894.
Gooding Avenue Project, located on Gooding Avenue between East 105th Street and Parkwood Drive. It is a residential street. The storm and sanitary main sewers on Gooding Avenue were built in 1907. The sewers are structurally deteriorated, causing basement flooding. The project consists of replacing approximately 2,200 feet of sanitary/storm main sewers on Gooding Avenue. The project will improve the condition of the sewers and increase the capacity, alleviating basement flooding.
Ontario Street Project, located on Ontario Street between Euclid Avenue and Rockwell Avenue and on Rockwell Avenue (west) between Ontario Street and West 2nd Street. The existing main brick sewer was constructed in 1875. Sections of the sewer are structurally damaged in several locations. The project consists of relining the existing brick main sewer. The project will improve the condition of the brick sewer and strengthen its structure to avoid a sewer collapse and sinking pavement and to prevent street and basement flooding in the commercial area of downtown Cleveland.
West 3 Street/Incinerator Pump Station, 2200 West 3 Street between the Cuyahoga River and Mahoning Avenue. The project consists of installing an above-ground pump station and wet well adjacent to the existing underground station.
Detroit Avenue Sewer Project, between 300 feet west of Berea Road to 500 feet west of railroad tracks. The project consists of replacing approximately 500 feet of combined sewer on Detroit Avenue, west of Berea Road.
East 149 Street, between Aspinwall Avenue and St. Clair Avenue. The project consists of replacing approximately 1,800 feet of sewer on East 149 Street.
Milligan Avenue, between West 130 Street and West 121 Street. The project consists of replacing approximately 1,500 feet of combined sewer on Milligan Avenue, between West 130 Street and West 121 Street.
West Boulevard,, between South Marginal and Lorain Court. The project consists of installing about 500 feet of combined sewer on West Boulevard between I-90 and Lorain Avenue.
Downtown Cleveland, in an area bordered by the Cuyahoga River, Lakeside Avenue, East 9 Street and Huron Road. The project consists of rehabilitating the main sewers within the Downtown Cleveland area.
The stormwater management techniques used at WPC help prevent flooding, protect stream channels, improve water quality and reduce the amount of pollutants flowing into local streams, rivers and ultimately Lake Erie. The project consists of a bioswale and two rain gardens with native plants that absorb stormwater and reduce the amount of runoff into sewers and local waterways; pervious pavements that allow stormwater runoff to infiltrate underground and reduce the chance of heavy rain overwhelming the sewer system. A 5,000 gallon water re-use system collects and stores rain water from the WPC building roof to be used for landscape irrigation and washing vehicles.
WPC’s stormwater management project was funded partially by a $260,000 Surface Water Improvement Fund Grant from the Ohio Environment Protection Agency.
Lee Road Project, located in the Lee Road area, with commercial, industrial and residential properties. The project consists of rehabilitating and replacing sewer manholes in various locations to the Lee Road sewer, which was build around 1928. The project will reduce the amount of inflow/infiltration into the sanitary sewers. The project will reduce stormwater runoff and help alleviate basement flooding.
Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (MLK Drive) Project, located between Sandusky Avenue and East 116 Street. The combined main sewer was full of roots and structurally deteriorated, causing basement flooding. About 958 feet of sewer was relined. The project improved the sewer and increased capacity, alleviating basement flooding. The sewer on MLK Drive was built in 1920.
Pearldale Avenue Project, located between Rocky River Drive and West 162nd Street in a residential area. The over-under storm and sanitary main sewers on Pearldale Avenue were built in 1924. Several sections of the storm sewer were relocated in 1956. Due to the proximity of the storm sewer to the sanitary sewer, infiltration/inflow occurs and surcharges the sewer. This causes basement flooding. The project consists of relining/replacing about 2,000 feet of sewer on Pearldale Avenue. The project will improve the sewer and increase capacity, alleviating basement flooding.
West 14 Street Project, located between Clark Avenue and Holmden Avenue in a residential and commercial area. The combined brick main sewer on West 14th Street was built in 1891. The sewer is structurally deteriorated. About 900 feet of combined sewer on West 14th Street will be relined. The project will improve the sewer and increase capacity, alleviating basement flooding.
Briggs Road and West 103 Project, located on West 103rd Street between Jasper Avenue and Briggs Road in a residential area in Ward 16. The main sewer on Briggs Road was built in 1966 and the main sewer on West 103rd Street was built in 1916. The main sewer on West 103rd Street did not have enough capacity, causing basement flooding. About 450 feet of relief main sewer was constructed on Briggs Road and West 103rd Street. The project improved the condition of the sewer and increased the capacity, alleviating basement flooding. The project was completed in December 2011.
Manufacturing Road Project, located in Ward 18 between West 160 Street and Industrial Parkway in an industrial area. The combined sewer on Manufacturing Road was built in 1957 and was structurally deteriorated. About 800 feet of combined sewer was replaced on Manufacturing Road, north of Industrial Parkway. The project helped prevent sewer failure and alleviate property and street flooding. The project was completed in December 2011.
Earle Avenue Project, located between East 105 Street and Parkwood Drive in a residential area. The storm and sanitary main sewers on Earle Avenue were built in 1908. The sewers were structurally deteriorated, causing basement flooding. About 1,800 feet of sewers were replaced on Earle Avenue. The project improved the sewers’ condition and capacity, alleviating basement flooding. The project was completed in July 2011.
Big Creek – WPC undertook a massive infrastructure improvement project in the Chevy Branch area of Big Creek. Big Creek is the third largest tributary to the Cuyahoga River. WPC replaced culverts on Emery, Harold, Kadel, Gilmore, Longmead, Erwin, Milligan and Leeila Avenues. WPC crews cleaned and restored 4,500 linear feet of stream. The restoration project was conducted between January and December of 2009. Minor cosmetic touches were made in early 2010. Annually on the first Saturday in June, WPC employees team with residents for the Big Creek Cleanup.
Kerruish Park – An existing retention basin is located North of I-480 and East of Lee Road. Phase 1 of this project consisted of clearing and grubbing of the dam area, removal of trees, repairing the dam structure including primary spillway, construction of a new emergency secondary spillway and construct access roadways. Phase 2 consisted of the excavation of the retention pool area to provide additional capacity, construction of a new outlet structure, construction of wetlands, and repair the existing culvert.
