As mandated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC) is implementing a Wet Weather Improvement Plan to reduce its 14 billion gallons of annual combined sewer overflow. The plan focuses largely on the 2,700-acre Lick Run Basin watershed. Gresham Smith has spearheaded master planning and design of a main trunk sewer to separate Lick Run basin’s storm flow from the combined system to help minimize overflows.
