CReWs will be out today in Riverfront Park starting a critical Capital Improvement Project on the Front Street Interceptor. This project will be completed in phases and the initial work will create pedestrian and bike detours along parts of the upper and lower walkway. Today, you will notice detour signs on walkways between Seneca and Emerald St. We will keep you updated on impact areas within the park as work continues throughout the year.

The $17 million project will restore about 2.7 miles of sewer interceptor between Seneca Street and the I-83 bridge in Harrisburg.

The 111-year-old Front Street Sewer Interceptor conveys a mixture of sewage and stormwater from half of the City of Harrisburg, as well as Susquehanna Township, to CRW’s pump station located at 830 S. Front Street. Since it was built in 1911, the interceptor has played a vital role in transporting wastewater and stormwater along an intricate system of pipes beneath the City before finally reaching the Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility (AWTF). Today, nearly 4 million gallons pass through the interceptor daily, and in some wet weather events, volumes can reach almost 20 million gallons. CRW regularly inspects and cleans the Front Street Interceptor to ensure reliability.

“This project is another example of our commitment to protecting public health and the environment,” said Capital Region Water CEO Charlotte Katzenmoyer. “The Front Street Interceptor is a major intercepting sewer line that collects flow from 15% of the City’s sewer system. Investing in this critical repair of the wastewater conveyance system is crucial to meeting our clean water goals.”
