2019 Sanitary Engineer Approved Budget Overview

Mission

The mission of the of the Sanitary Engineering Department is to provide safe and reliable water and sewer services to the residents of Franklin County in such a way that protects the environment and protects the health of Franklin County residents.

Strategic Initiatives

  1. Evaluate residential metering options, and create plans necessary to upgrade all residential meters.
  2. Evaluate and implement plans necessary to modernize three pump stations: Young Estates, Timberbook, and Village Park.
  3. Review the Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Study and create a timetable to address sanitary sewer repairs identified to decrease inflow and infiltration.
  4. Secure the necessary funding to install the Water Quality Partnership (WQP) systems.

Strategic Issues

  1. Environmental Compliance Program - Compliance with increasingly higher EPA reporting standards, and identifying sufficient funding sources to sustain construction projects.
  2. Securing grant funding - Grant funding is harder to find for all water and sewer projects. Also of important note is CDBG funding to help with the connection assistance is harder to come by.
  3. Age of current water/ sewer infrastructure - Most of the water and/or sewer assets are either close to or past operational life and need to be replaced/rehabilitated.
  4. Cost of water/sewer services by Columbus Public Utilities - Cost of water and/or sewer services from the Columbus Public Utilities increases each year, forcing us to match the increase to continue to pay water/sewer bills to the City of Columbus.
