Existing sanitary sewer interceptors will be replaced in four project areas that impact Fort Worth Council District 11, Haltom City and Blue Mound.
Map 1 is in Haltom City.
Map 2 is in Blue Mound, north and west of Council District 2. It extends northwesterly from the Blue Mound/Fort Worth city line – just south of Independence Road – to S Blue Mound Road.
Map 3 is in Fort Worth Council District 11 and Haltom City. The sewer interceptor runs through industrial and commercial areas from Thomas Road at Orval Court to Elliott Reeder Road. The interceptor crosses Airport Freeway and the TRE.
Map 4 is in Council District 2. It extends from Thomas Road at Lower Birdville Road to Thomas Road at Orval Court.
Also included in this capital improvement project is converting a City of Fort Worth meter station to solar power and updating the structural design of the meter station.
An interceptor sewer is a major sewer line that receives flows from trunk sewer lines and smaller sewer mains. This combined flow is then directed to a wastewater treatment facility or another interceptor.
In a typical sewer system, sewage first flows from domestic buildings via relatively small pipelines known as laterals. These pipelines take wastewater from residential/private properties and direct it to government-owned local sewer lines that run under streets and other rights-of-way, or in easements. Local sewer lines then discharge the wastewater via gravity to trunk sewers located at various manhole locations.
Interceptor sewers then take the contents of the trunk sewers, directing them to an appropriate treatment facility. Since interceptor sewers take collective flows from laterals, local lines, and trunk sewers, they are among the largest pipes in a sewer network. Some interceptor sewer lines can be more than eight feet (96-inches) in diameter and convey millions of gallons of wastewater per day. Interceptor sewers are also known as interceptors.
