 Intercommunity Relief Sewers
Sometimes existing sanitary sewers are not large enough to carry the flow, particularly when it rains. This can lead to basement and/or street flooding. In many cases, the solution to this problem is to build another sewer, called a relief sewer, parallel to the original one. If this relief sewer must cross a community boundary to get to a District interceptor, then it becomes the responsibility of the District to build and maintain this intercommunity relief sewer (ICRS). This type of sewer pipe is usually larger than local sewers, ranging between 3 feet and 6 feet in diameter.

The District has built a number of intercommunity relief sewers to provide capacity for local community sewer relief, particularly in the area of the Heights/Hilltop and Southwest Interceptors.

Current District projects dealing with intercommunity relief sewers include:
  • Bryden-Farsnleigh ICRS - Shaker Heights
  • Lee-Superior ICRS - Cleveland Heights
