Edgecliff Relief Sewer Project

Special Notes for Residents

Project is complete


  • City of Euclid Water Reclamation Facility
  • Edgecliff Drive, east of E. 217th Street


The project consists of the construction of a box culvert relief sewer through the wastewater treatment plant site to the existing headwall at the shore of Lake Erie. Also includes headwall modifications including construction below the Lake Erie water level, modifications to existing concrete structures, new concrete structures, gate installation, electrical, instrumentation and control, 74 feet of 24” sanitary sewer and manholes on Edgecliff Drive and site restoration.


The construction of the relief sewer through the water reclamation facility will allow flows that exceed a typical rainfall year up to a 25-year storm to flow to Lake Erie and serve to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows in upstream areas of the City.

The Edgecliff Drive sanitary sewer has capacity limitations and some structural defects. Sewer surcharging occurs resulting in overflows and basement flooding during intense rain events. The replacement of the segment of sanitary sewer, in combination with the relief sewer at the plant, will eliminate the capacity issue and eliminate overflows for the design storm event.
