SEWER CAPACITY AND REASSURANCE PROGRAM

(SCARP)

 

The SCARP Program provides for evaluation and potential rehabilitation of the existing sewage collection and interceptor facilities in order to ensure long term wastewater capacity. 

History:  At times of wet weather, the flow in the sewer lines peaks greatly causing for an overflow at the Allentown Wastewater Treatment Plant.  Federal and State agencies have required all municipalities that discharge their wastewater into Allentown to have a program to find and correct the inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sewer lines.

These are the activities the Borough will be performing in 2010:

Nighttime Flow Monitoring in Sewer Manholes

(This activity has been completed)

May/June 2010

Daytime Smoke Testing

(Blowing of harmless, odorless smoke under pressure into sewer lines via manholes in the street to locate leaks)

August/September 2010

Sewer Line Television Inspection

July-December 2010(During Wet Weather Only)

Building Inspections

July–December 2010

Wet Weather Observations

July-December 2010(Daytime During Rain Events)

Term Definitions

 

NOTE: Each of the above activities will be conducted in predetermined locations within the Borough based on continuing investigations.  Residents will be notified prior to smoke testing or building inspections starting in their neighborhoods.
