Wastewater Collection System Master Plan Update
Selma-Kingsburg-Fowler County Sanitation District, California

West Yost completed a comprehensive update to the Selma-Kingsburg-Fowler County Sanitation District’s (District) Wastewater Collection System Master Plan. This update provided the District’s three member agencies (the cities of Selma, Kingsburg, and Fowler) an infrastructure plan for future growth that accurately reflects recent changes caused by both the economic downturn and the recent drought. Because areas within the District have experienced significant infiltration and inflow (I&I), the project evaluated cost-effective I&I reduction methods in conjunction with prioritized sewer and pump station capacity improvement projects. West Yost also developed maintenance standard operating procedures; conducted a preventative maintenance program evaluation; performed a comprehensive business risk assessment that provides a risk-based prioritized capital improvement program (CIP); and developed web-based GIS project mapping and detailed CIP project sheets to convey project triggers and details to the District’s staff, member agency staff, and other stakeholders.
