HERTEL AVENUE AT DEER STREET REAL-TIME CONTROL PROJECT
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The Hertel at Deer project reduces combined sewer overflows into the Niagara River by controlling flow to the Bird Island Wastewater Treatment Plant during wet weather. The Hertel Avenue Trunk Sewer is comprised of two inter-connected barrels at this location. Both barrels terminate in Black Rock Canal Park. The location for this project was selected to maximize the storage volume available upstream of the structure without creating basement backups and flooding in low-lying areas. The real-time control structure is approximately 41’x36’ in dimension and the bottom of the structure is approximately 26’ below grade. The total cost for this project was approximately $3.5 million.
