The primary goals of this project are to separate the stormwater and sanitary sewer flows into independent systems to reduce flow to the Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation Facility and prevent Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) at the 22nd and High Street outfall.
Near West Side Sewer Separation Project
The City of Des Moines has initiated a new Project to remove stormwater from the combined sanitary and storm sewers in the Ingersoll Avenue, Woodland Cemetery Neighborhood and the Carpenter Avenue area. This Project is located west of downtown Des Moines and is bounded on the east by Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, to the south by Grand Avenue, to the west by 31st Street and multiple local streets to the north with Clark Street as the northern most street.
This Project Website has been developed to provide current Project information, schedule of events and provide opportunity for the public to engage with the Project Team.
