Learn more about the Euclid Creek Tunnel Project

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, in partnership with Northeast Shores Development Corporation, will host two meetings for the Collinwood community to update area residents and commercial businesses about the Euclid Creek Tunnel.  Both meetings will be held at the Collinwood Recreation Center, 16300 Lakeshore Boulevard. Businesses: Wednesday, February 29 9:00 a.m. Residents: Thursday, March 1 6:00 p.m.

These meetings are for commercial businesses and residents in proximity of the NEORSD Euclid Creek Tunnel. We will provide a project overview and an update on construction schedules and impacts to traffic patterns. We also want to address any concerns the local businesses may have regarding this project and resulting impacts.

The Euclid Creek Tunnel is a $197 million project that will capture combined sewer overflows, or CSOs, drastically reducing raw sewage that enters our waterways during heavy storms. Construction began in April, 2011, and will continue for four years.

Two additional large-scale construction projects will be integrated with the Euclid Creek Tunnel. The Tunnel Dewatering Pump Station is an $80 million project that will pump sewage out of the storage tunnel to the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant for treatment. Upon completion of the Euclid Creek Tunnel, the Sewer District will begin construction on the Dugway Storage Tunnel, which will further reduce combined sewer overflows in the area.
