Kansas City Smart Sewer Program


Kansas City’s Smart Sewer Program is a 25-year, estimated $4.5 billion plan to address sewer overflows, improve water quality and meet the requirements of the City’s federal Consent Decree. It is the city’s largest infrastructure investment and the first federally approved Consent Decree to incorporate green solutions.

Through numerous I/I removal, neighborhood sewer rehabilitation, green solutions, and treatment facility renewal projects in both the combined and separated sewer areas, the city expects to capture or treat 88 percent of combined sewer flow and eliminate sanitary sewer overflows during a five-year rainfall event.

TREKK has performed field investigations, including manhole and building inspections, cleaning and televising, smoke testing, flow monitoring, GIS data integration, processing, QA/QC and delivery across all corners of the city as part of the Program.

While much of our work to date has focused on system characterization, inflow and infiltration, and field data collection and processing, TREKK also provides engineering design and survey for sewer improvement projects. One such design project, the Diversion 099 Sewer Separation, included the design of both storm and sanitary sewer while incorporating stormwater street trees as a green solution. Our NASSCO-certified construction inspectors also provide on-site inspection of sewer line construction and manhole and sewer line testing.

TREKK is also a graduate of the City’s Smart Sewer University, which is a workforce development program for MBE/WBE/SLBE firms in Kansas City.
