CLEVELAND, Nov. 26, 2002 -- A Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District selection committee has recommended Wade-Trim to the Board of Trustees as the firm best qualified to design the Southerly District Combined Sewer Overflow Early Action projects.

According to Project Manager Rod Dell'Andrea, "these are relatively inexpensive stand alone projects. When implemented, they will in some cases substantially reduce the number of combined sewer overflows in the Southerly service area."

Combined sewer overflows are the result of overloaded interceptors that carry both storm water and sanitary sewage. Overflows are detrimental to the environment and can result in basement flooding. To date, the District has invested over $1.7 billion building and rehabilitating interceptors, upgrading wastewater treatment plants and controlling wet-weather pollution sources. The District's efforts to curb combined sewer overflows will ultimately improve water quality in the Greater Cleveland area and make the lakefront more suitable for development.

At this point, the District Engineering department will begin price negotiations with Wade-Trim. "If negotiations are successful, the Engineering department will present the Board with a resolution request recommending the award of a contract to Wade-Trim at the negotiated price," revealed Dell'Andrea. Engineering currently estimates the cost for this work at approximately $900,000.

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District operates three wastewater treatment plants and related water pollution control facilities on Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River and Rocky River. The District serves 58 suburban communities and the City of Cleveland and employs approximately 550 people.
