EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Introduction
The Port Washington Road Relief Sewer project is being implemented by the Milwaukee
Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) to reduce sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs)
from the MMSD Metropolitan Interceptor Sewer (MIS) System. The initial focus of the
project was to reduce SSOs in the project area shown in Figure ES-1. Hydraulic analyses
were performed to identify the conditions under which SSOs occur and to develop
alternatives for reducing overflows. As the project evolved, the focus was broadened to
configure it as an extension of the Inline Storage System (ISS) to provide additional
systemwide storage that can be utilized for either systemwide relief or relief specific to
the Port Washington Road project area. A total of 27 MG of additional ISS storage is to
be provided.
Hydraulic Evaluation
SSOs in the Port Washington Road project area have been observed at the locations
shown in Figure ES-1. A review of the historical data revealed that, in general, overflows
at most of these locations occurred when the ISS was filled to capacity and not available
to relieve the MIS. Exceptions to this are the overflows at BS0506 on North Range Line
Road and BS0514 on North 27th Street at West Silver Spring Drive (27th and Silver
Spring). Furthermore, BS0504 on North Lydell Avenue at West Hampton Avenue
(Lydell and Hampton), BS0512 on North Lydell Avenue at West Lancaster Avenue
(Lydell and Lancaster), and BS0513 on North Lydell Avenue at West Montclaire Avenue
(Lydell and Montclaire) have not activated since system modifications were made that
allow the MIS in North Lydell Avenue to be relieved at Bypass Structures BS0515 and
BS0516. However, BS0513 could still activate under extreme hydrologic conditions or if
diversion chamber gates do not operate in accordance with established standard operating
procedures. BS0504 and BS0512 could also be activated, but only if the overflow gates
in the structures are manually operated to allow an overflow to occur.
Hydraulic analyses were performed to evaluate the existing system and identify
alternatives to reduce the frequency and volume of SSOs within the project area. The
analyses used the calibrated sewer flow and hydraulic models being utilized for the 2020
Facilities Planning project.
The hydraulic evaluation demonstrated that the relief needs in the Port Washington Road
area are not the result of conveyance limitations; rather, they are caused by limitations in
the ability of the ISS to provide the required storage volume for the design conditions.
Therefore, the relief evaluation focused on alternatives to control overflows that occur
after the ISS has filled. It was concluded that expanding the ISS to provide additional
storage volume can provide this relief.
Alternatives Evaluation
Two alternatives were developed to add 27 MG of storage volume to the ISS. Both
alternatives include concrete-lined deep rock tunnels that would connect to the existing
ISS along West Hampton Avenue. The alignments for the alternatives are shown in
Figure ES-2.

The first alternative is an 18-foot finished diameter tunnel that would extend from the ISS
at West Hampton Avenue in Lincoln Park north along North Sunny Point Road to West
Green Tree Road near Pump Station PS0502. The second alternative is a 21-foot finished
diameter tunnel that would connect to the ISS at West Hampton Avenue near North 31st
Street and extend north along North 27th Street to the intersection of West Mill Road and
North Sidney Place.
Both alternatives were evaluated with respect to archaeological and environmental
impacts, utility coordination and real estate requirements, potential impacts to the public,
and geotechnical conditions.
The 27th Street Alignment was selected as the preferred alternative primarily because of
more favorable geotechnical conditions. There is considerably greater risk associated
with construction of the Milwaukee River Alignment because of its proximity to the
Milwaukee River and the potential for large water inflows during tunnel excavation that
would be difficult to control. In addition, the construction workshaft location is more
favorable for the 27th Street Alignment because it will not require disturbance of Lincoln
Park, as is required for the Milwaukee River Alignment.
Recommended Alternative
The main component of the recommended alternative is a 21-foot finished diameter
tunnel that would be constructed as an extension to the ISS and that would connect to the
existing North Shore Phase II tunnel near North 31st Street at West Hampton Avenue
(31st and Hampton). The tunnel would extend north along North 27th Street to West Mill
Road, a length of about 11,000 feet. Workshafts to be finished as permanent access
shafts would be required at West Hampton Avenue and West Mill Road. A carbon filter
odor control structure would be constructed at the top of the Mill Road shaft. A
dropshaft would be constructed at the upstream end of the tunnel near West Mill Road.
Diversion chamber DC0409 would need to be modified by adding an isolation gate on the
South Shore-bound side of the diversion chamber. This gate would close when the
separate sewer gates to the ISS close to prevent backflow to the NS-3 dropshaft from
locations downstream of DC0409.
Preliminary plans have been completed for the recommended alternative and are included
as an appendix to this Preliminary Engineering Report. Construction is expected to begin
in 2007 and be complete by the end of 2009. The estimated construction, capital, and
operation and maintenance costs for the recommended facilities are summarized in Table
ES-1. The construction cost is based on an anticipated bid date in the first quarter of
2007.

(1st Quarter 2007)

Operating Strategy
The recommended tunnel will be an extension of the ISS. With this additional tunnel
volume, there are two operating strategies that can be employed.
The first strategy is to operate the ISS as is currently done, but with the recognition that
an additional 27 MG of storage is available. This will allow the system to capture more
sanitary sewer flow, if the ISS control algorithm is modified to increase the volume
reserved for separate sewage inflow (VRSSI) by 27 MG. While this will result in some
reduction in SSOs throughout the MMSD service area for those wet weather events that
exceed the current capacity of the ISS, the SSO reductions at individual bypass locations
will be small, based on modeling of this strategy previously completed for the MMSD.
The second operating strategy is to give preference to reducing overflows in the
service area that is currently tributary to the NS-3 dropshaft, with the objective of
providing more significant SSO reductions at the following locations:
• West Green Tree Road at the Milwaukee River (BS0404)
• BS0515/BS0516
• North 27th Street at West Villard Avenue (BS0505)
When a specified volume is reached in the ISS, all separate sewer gates except those that
deliver flow to the NS-3 dropshaft and the new Mill Road dropshaft would be closed.
The NS-3 gates (NS-3 junction chamber, DC0508, DC0507, and DC0409) and the gate to
the Mill Road dropshaft would remain open to allow continued relief of the MIS in the
Port Washington Road project area.
These alternative operating strategies will be evaluated further and a strategy selected
during final design of the project.

Chapter 1
INTRODUCTION
The Port Washington Road Relief Sewer project is being implemented by the Milwaukee
Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) to reduce sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs)
from the MMSD Metropolitan Interceptor Sewer (MIS) System. This project, along with
the Wisconsin Avenue Relief Sewer project, is included in the Stipulation Agreement
between the MMSD and the State of Wisconsin dated May 29, 2002. As outlined in the
Stipulation, these two projects add a total of 27 MG of storage to the MMSD conveyance
system. Engineering evaluations performed for these projects have shown that relief
needs in the Wisconsin Avenue area can best be addressed by a conveyance relief project,
whereas relief in the Port Washington Road area requires additional storage volume.
Therefore, the MMSD has decided to provide 27 MG of storage as part of the Port
Washington Road Relief Sewer project. This storage will be provided by building an
extension to the Inline Storage System (ISS).
This preliminary engineering report documents the investigations performed to evaluate
alternatives for providing the additional ISS storage and summarizes the final
recommendations. The recommended project is a 21-foot finished diameter tunnel that
will connect to the existing ISS near North 31st Street at West Hampton Avenue (31st and
Hampton) and extend north about two miles to West Mill Road at North Sidney Place
(Mill and Sidney).

Chapter 2
BASIS OF DESIGN
The initial focus of the Port Washington Road Relief Sewer project was to reduce SSOs
in the project area shown in Figure 1. Hydraulic analyses were performed to identify the
conditions under which SSOs occur and develop alternatives for reducing overflows. As
the project evolved, the focus was broadened to configure it as an extension of the ISS to
provide additional systemwide storage that can be utilized for either systemwide relief or
relief specific to the Port Washington Road project area.
Existing Bypass Locations
Historically, SSOs have been observed at the following locations, as shown in Figure 1:
• BS0404: Manholes near the Green Tree Road pump station (PS0502)
• BS0504: Bypass structure near the intersection of North Lydell Avenue at West
Hampton Avenue (Lydell and Hampton)
• BS0505: Bypass structure near the intersection of North 27th Street at West Villard
Avenue (27th and Villard)
• BS0506: Bypass structure at North Range Line Road and the Milwaukee River
• BS0512: Bypass structure near the intersection of North Lydell Avenue at West
Lancaster Avenue (Lydell and Lancaster)
• BS0513: Bypass stucture near the intersection of North Lydell Avenue at West
Montclaire Avenue (Lydell and Montclaire)
• BS0514: Bypass structure near the intersection of North 27th Street at West Silver
Spring Drive (27th and Silver Spring)
• BS0515 and BS0516: Bypass structures next to the Milwaukee River just upstream of
the NS-3 dropshaft
A review of the historical data revealed that, in general, overflows at most of these
locations occurred when the Inline Storage System (ISS) was filled to capacity and not
available to relieve the MIS. Exceptions to this are the overflows at BS0506 and
BS0514. Furthermore, BS0504, BS0512, and BS0513 have not activated since system
modifications were made that allow the MIS in North Lydell Avenue to be relieved by
Bypass Structures BS0515 and BS0516. However, BS0513 could still activate under
extreme hydrologic conditions or if diversion chamber gates do not operate in accordance
with established standard operating procedures. BS0504 and BS0512 could also be
activated, but only if the overflow gates in the structures are manually operated to allow
an overflow to occur.
MIS Configuration
The MIS in the Port Washington Road project area is shown in Figure 1. A schematic of
the system is shown in Figure 2. Flows enter the project area through three MIS
branches, a 39-inch special section MIS from the north, a 72-inch MIS from the

northeast, and a 39-inch special section MIS from the northeast. During dry weather,
wastewater in the 39-inch MIS from the north flows through Diversion Chamber DC0508
to Pump Station PS0501 where it is pumped to the 42-inch MIS in North Lydell Avenue
and flows to the Jones Island Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). When wastewater
flows rise during wet weather, wastewater is diverted out of the 39-inch special section
MIS at Diversion Structure 70509 to Pump Station PS0502 and discharged into the 72-
inch MIS that proceeds southwesterly from West Green Tree Road and the Milwaukee
River. Also, during wet weather, wastewater is diverted out of the 39-inch special
section MIS at DC0508 and into the 84/96-inch Collector sewer where it is conveyed to
the NS-3 dropshaft.
The operational strategy of the MIS in this area includes several other wet weather flow
diversions. At the beginning of a wet weather event, wastewater in the Jones Island-
bound 39-inch special section MIS in West Green Tree Road is diverted to the South
Shore-bound 72-inch MIS at DC0406. High flows in the South Shore-bound 72-inch
MIS along West Mill Road are diverted into the 72-inch MIS in North 27th Street at
DC0409 and then diverted into the Collector at DC0508. This flow is conveyed to the
NS-3 dropshaft and into the ISS. As flows rise in the 42-inch MIS in North Lydell
Avenue, gates in DC0509 are closed and gates in DC0507 are opened to divert
wastewater to the Collector at DC0507 and then to the NS-3 dropshaft.
During extreme events, the ISS can fill to its capacity. When this occurs, the gate in the
junction chamber at the NS-3 dropshaft is closed to prevent further flow into the ISS.
The gates to the ISS at DC0508 and the diversion gate to the 72-inch MIS in North 27th
Street at DC0409 are closed. The diversion gates at DC0507 remain open to allow excess
flow in the 42-inch MIS in North Lydell Avenue to be routed to the Collector. If the
Collector fills, overflows to the Milwaukee River can occur at BS0515 and BS0516.
Hydraulic Evaluation
Hydraulic analyses were performed to evaluate the relief facilities required to reduce the
frequency and volume of SSOs within the project area. The analyses used the calibrated
sewer flow and hydraulic models being utilized for the 2020 Facilities Planning project.
The 2020 Facilities Plan sewer flow model generates continuous sewer flow hydrographs
using population, land use, and meteorological data. Hydrographs can be simulated for a
variety of extreme events. Data collected from temporary flow monitors, as discussed
below, were used to refine the calibration of the sewer flow model.
The 2020 Facilities Plan Project hydraulic model was used to evaluate the hydraulic
capacity of the MIS in the Port Washington Road project area. This model includes
existing MMSD conveyance/storage system facilities (i.e., the MIS, the ISS, and the Near
Surface Collector (NSC) system) and facilities for future projects that the MMSD has
committed to build. The committed projects that are incorporated in the hydraulic model
include 2010 Facilities Plan conveyance system projects, Central MIS projects, and the
Northwest Side Relief Sewer.
Temporary Monitoring Program
Four temporary area-velocity flow meters and one temporary rain gauge were installed in
the Port Washington Road Relief Sewer project area to define flows in the system. Data

2-4
were also collected from an MMSD area-velocity meter (M14906) in the 10-inch MIS on
North Range Line Road. The temporary meters and rain gauge were installed and began
to collect data on April 15, 2004. Data were collected continuously until June 15, 2004.
These data supplemented flow monitoring data collected at MMSD’s permanent level-
only flow meters that are located throughout the MMSD service area. The locations of
the permanent and temporary flow meters and the temporary rain gauge used in the flow
data analysis are shown schematically in Figure 2.
Model Calibration
The sewer flow model originally calibrated for the 2020 Facilities Plan project was
recalibrated for sewersheds within the project area using data from storm events in May
2004. The Port Washington Road project calibration involved comparing simulated
flows to measured flows and adjusting the model calibration parameters. Measured flows
from selected MMSD permanent meters within the project area and the temporary meters
described above were used for the calibration process.
Model Results
The 2020 Facilities Plan hydraulic model was used to evaluate the Port Washington Road
system under a range of extreme wet weather events. The results of the evaluation were
used to reach the following conclusions:
• For most wet weather events, BS0506 (North Range Line Road) is activated as a
result of an MIS restriction just downstream of the bypass. Under extreme events,
hydraulic limitations farther downstream can also contribute to overflows at this
location. Because the primary cause of overflows at this location is not linked to
other system capacity limitations, the reduction of overflows at this location is
addressed in a separate report.
• Overflows at BS0514 (27th and Silver Spring) are not the result of high hydraulic
gradeline elevations in the MIS when the MIS and ISS are operated in accordance
with standard operating procedures. It appears that historical overflows were the
result of inefficient hydraulic conditions at the connection of the City of Milwaukee
sewer to the MIS at this location. A City of Milwaukee sewer modification project
constructed during 2005 is expected to reduce the hydraulic restriction.
• The bypasses at BS0504 (Lydell and Hampton), BS0512 (Lydell and Lancaster) and
BS0513 (Lydell and Montclaire) were not activated under any of the simulated wet
weather conditions. Under current operating conditions, excess flows in the 42-inch
MIS in North Lydell Avenue would be relieved at BS0515 and BS0516.
• The bypasses at BS0404 (Green Tree Road and the Milwaukee River), BS0505 (27th
and Villard), and BS0515/BS0516 activate only when the ISS fills and is not
available to provide relief to the MIS.
The hydraulic evaluation demonstrated that the relief needs in the Port Washington Road
area are not the result of conveyance limitations; rather, they are caused by limitations in
the ability of the ISS to provide the required storage volume for the design conditions.
Therefore, the relief evaluation focused on alternatives to control overflows that occur

2-5
after the ISS has filled. It was concluded that expanding the ISS to provide additional
storage volume can provide this relief.
Alternatives Development
Two alternatives were developed to add the required 27 MG of storage volume to the
ISS. Both alternatives include concrete-lined deep rock tunnels that would connect to the
existing ISS along West Hampton Avenue.
Alternative 1 - Milwaukee River Alignment
The alignment for this alternative, shown in Figure 3, extends from the ISS at West
Hampton Avenue in Lincoln Park to West Green Tree Road near PS0502. The total
length of the tunnel would be about 14,600 feet. An 18 foot finished diameter tunnel
would be needed to provide the required storage volume.

Alternative 2 - 27th Street Alignment
The alignment for this alternative, shown in Figure 4, extends from the ISS at West
Hampton Avenue near 31st Street to West Mill Road near DC0409. The total tunnel
length would be about 11,000 feet. A finished diameter of 21 feet would be needed to
provide the required storage volume.
