Combined Sewer Outflow (CSO) Management Project

Syracuse, NY


Fisher Associates prepared dozens of right-of-way, topographic and utility surveys for the Combined Sewer Outflow Management Program (CSO) in the city of Syracuse, NY. To separate combined storm water and sanitary sewers, Fisher prepared detailed surveys to depict storm water runoff and drainage characteristics. Important site features were captured including all sanitary and storm sewer structures, roadways and utilities such as electric/natural gas/telephone/water/fiber optic. This information was compiled with utility records utilizing the "Dig Safely New York Program" and provided in AutoCAD and 3D digital terrain models. Property lines and street right-of-ways were determined and mapped.
