Sewer definitions

January 26, 2017

I notice many people looking for information on my blog.  All sorts of wording, spellings, comingling, etc. occur since most ordinary people don’t know diddly about infrastructure. I didn’t know either, but I took the time to learn a little bit.

The situation in Fraser Michigan involves an INTERCEPTOR sewer drain deep underground, and the diameter is literally large enough to walk through. It was designed to collect sewage from entire neighborhoods/cities and direct the flow into a WWTP.  The Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) is in Detroit (far away).

This INTERCEPTOR sewage system (shown above) – is very, very, different from the miles of open to the sky, (i.e. open channel shown below) stormdrains occurring all over in Macomb County. The Red Run is used by Oakland County and the City of Warren when its systems becomes overwhelmed by stormwater .
