SHORT TERM CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS BEING PLANNED
The Authority is currently updating its Strategic Plan. This plan calls for two major capital improvement projects for near term construction.
Project 1 is the replacement of our Crum Creek Force Main. The existing force main has been in continuous service since it was installed in 1938. A new force main will be installed along the existing route. In addition, the interceptor will be replaced from the end of the force main to its point of discharge at the Central Pump Station.
We anticipate this project will start in 2015 and cost approximately $6,055,000.
Project 2 is the rehabilitation of the Crum Creek Pump Station. This facility has been in continuous use since its construction in 1938. The station will receive four new 150 HP motors and pumps as well as new electrical and motor control systems. The emergency electrical generator and all internal piping and valves will be replaced. The building itself will receive major repairs.
We anticipate this project will start in 2016 and cost approximately $3,842,000.

LONG TERM COUNTY WIDE PLANNING TAKING PLACE

This includes not only the communities served by CDCA but Muckinipates Authority, Darby Creek Joint Authority, and the Radnor-Haverford-Marple Authority as well.

Recently, this planning effort has added an additional focus; private property I&I. This is referring to the extraordinary amount of rain and ground water that is leaking into our sewer system through building laterals. The 537 Planning document includes a proposed ordinance to require a point of sale inspection and repair of building laterals.
