Western Regional Interceptor

HWC completed the design of the Western Regional Interceptor, which resulted from a master planning effort completed in conjunction with an IDEM-Agreed Order. The project included a new regional interceptor for the western sanitary sewer service area for the City of Greenwood, Indiana. The interceptor flows via gravity from White River Township to relieve the City’s existing interceptors in the old downtown area and east side, which were at capacity and experiencing surcharging and overflows. The new interceptor runs from SR 135 at the southeast end to SR 37 to the northwest. It generally follows Turkey Pen Creek and Honey Creek and runs adjacent to, or in between, several subdivisions that have experienced significant growth over the last 25 years. The interceptor connects to Citizens Energy Group’s existing 102” diameter South Marion County Regional Interceptor.

The interceptor ranges in size from 15’ to 60’ in diameter, allowed for 10 lift stations to be decommissioned, and included multiple sections constructed via trenchless technology due to road and waterway crossings.

The $65 million project was constructed in two phases and was completed in 2023 utilizing the guaranteed savings project delivery method.

Project Highlights:

  • Project Construction Cost: $60 Million
  • Approximately 55,000’ of gravity sewers ranging in size from 8” to 60” diameter
  • Approximately 10,000’ of 24” diameter force main
  • Jack and bore installations at several locations including SR 37, SR 135, Indiana Railroad, and several of the major County road crossings
  • Pleasant Run Creek crossing, consisting of two parallel 42” pipes as required to maintain adequate cover under the creek
  • Elimination of 10 existing pump stations
  • Right-of-way easement acquisition for approximately 250 parcels along the interceptor route
