Saddle Creek Area – 55th to 64th Avenue Sewer Separation

The intent of the Saddle Creek Area–55th Street to 64th Avenue Sewer Separation Project was to provide sewer separation to the area east of 60th Street and south of Center Street in the area of Saddle Creek Basin. As a result of this project, flow from an un-named creek that flows through the Bohemian/Westlawn Cemetery area is now being conveyed directly to the Little Papillion Creek through a new storm sewer/open channel system instead of being collected in the Saddle Creek trunk sewer at approximately 55th and Center Streets. This project has reduced combined sewer flow in the Papillion Creek system, reduced treatment of stormwater flow at the Papillion Creek Water Resource Recovery Facility, and reduced the volume of combined sewer flows to the Saddle Creek Retention Treatment Basin and downstream facilities.
