The Buffalo Sewers - History and Current Management 

Buffalo Sewers:  History, Project management, and Supply Chain

Since the 1840s, Buffalo has continually worked to protect the environment and human health from the effects of sewage.  Over this time, the technologies used to achieve this goal have evolved as have the parameters used to define what protection means.   But pipes which were laid in the 1840s continue to be used.  As the Buffalo Sewer Authority implements its $380 million combined sewer overflow long term control plan while continuing to manage this existing system, this historical infrastructure offers both challenges and opportunities.
