3 GWK Drainage System

4 GWK System Map

5 GWK System Map: Clawson Vicinity Towards GWK RTF

6 Slide 6 GWK RTF Design: Criteria  The GWK RTF is a Pollution Control Facility that screens out sanitary trash and other solids and provides disinfection using chlorine before discharging to the Red Run Drain.  Chlorine contact time and wet weather volume storage provided using the 124 Million Gallons of storage capacity available in the facility.

7 Slide 7 GWK RTF Design: Criteria  Designed to address flows from a 10-year, 1-hour design event. Peak flow rate into the GWK RTF ≈ 3.1 Million Gallons per Minute (7,000 cfs).  GWK RTF construction and upgrades were required to reduce Combined Sewage Overflows (CSOs) and be in compliance with MDEQ rules and the Federal Clean Water Act.

8 Slide 8 GWK RTF Design: Extent of Pollution Control Facility

9 Slide 9 GWK RTF Design: Original Influent Weir

10 Slide 10 GWK RTF Operations Explained: Operator’s Walk-through

11 Slide 11 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Event Statistics  WRC has a network of rain gauges that provide rainfall depth from every wet weather event.  Rain Gauge 0880 is located at the GWK RTF and is used to determine rainfall amounts for much of the GWK RTF service area.

12 Slide 12 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Event Statistics  Rainfall frequency is determined by referencing published texts.  At the time of the GWK RTF design “Technical Paper 40” was a reference text.  Today. “NOAA Atlas 14” is the reference text.

13 Slide 13 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Radar Rainfall

14 Slide 14 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Radar Rainfall

16 Slide 16 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Effect on GWKDD and RTF

17 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Effect on GWK RTF

18 Slide 18 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Effect on GWK RTF

19 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Effect on Red Run Drain Red Run at GWK Outlet (Dequindre)

20 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: Effect on Red Run Drain Red Run at MoundRed Run at Van Dyke

21 Slide 21 August 11, 2014 Wet Weather Event: WRC Next Steps  Collect community data from basement flooding  Hydraulic study of the GWK facility

22 Slide 22 Oakland County Executive Office Announcement  “The flooding impacted thousands of individuals who now have many questions about how to recover from this disaster. The Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARCs) will be an opportunity to meet with experts who can answer some of those questions.” – L. Brooks Patterson  The Southfield MARC will be open 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the Southfield Pavilion, Evergreen Road south of the I-696 expressway.
