Remedial Measures Plan and Program Management Services in Lexington, KY
Hazen has served as an extension of Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) staff since the inception of the Remedial Measures Plan (RMP) program over a decade ago, and remains fully committed to assisting utility staff to ensure Consent Decree compliance.
The RMP identified 82 separate projects to eliminate 111 recurring sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) by 2026 at a cost of $591 million. Three separate RMP reports (one for each watershed group) were submitted to the U.S. EPA and the Kentucky Division of Water (KDOW) in 2011 and 2012. The largest projects were two separate 44 million gallon storage facilities at LFUCG’s two largest wastewater treatment plants. Six other smaller storage facilities are proposed throughout the system, along with trunk sewer capacity increases and system rehabilitation projects.
