CSO Rack 14 Project

Working in conjunction with the Akron infrastructure firm of HM Miller, Donley’s concrete division constructed a 2.0 MGal combined sewer overflow structure basin on the north side of the Little Cuyahoga River, across from the existing Rack 14 facility.  The basin is equipped with a combination manual and automated flushing/washdown system.

Financed jointly between the City, the US EPA and the Ohio EPA, the project is a key element in an $800 million, multi-year initiative to improve Akron’s sewer system by achieving zero untreated overflows in a typical year and improving water quality in nearby streams and rivers.

Project scope also includes:

  • 140′ truss pipe bridge
  • Operations building
  • Site lighting, fencing, and site utilities
  • Cleaning and lining the existing 15-inch and 48-inch combined sewer
