City of Omaha Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Program

Omaha, Nebraska

Major cities across the U.S. face an unfunded federal mandate, as does the City of Omaha, to implement a plan for controlling overflow s from combined sewers within the City. The purpose of this mammoth undertaking is to improve water quality and protect rivers, creeks, and streams. Lamp Rynearson’s roles have included contributing to the initial basin studies for the Leavenworth and Burt-Izard basins; providing overall program-wide utility coordination; serving as Project Coordinator and Compliance Coordinator on several projects; and leading the development of a sustainability program, including the implementation of Envision™ on major projects. Lamp Rynearson has also provided design and construction administration services for four major sewer separation projects in the Burt-Izard Basin, the Webster Street project and three phases of the Nicholas Street project.
