The Northside Project

NSIT AerialThe Northside Project 

The Northside Project includes construction of the Northside Interceptor Tunnel (NSIT), which is one of the last projects of the Akron Waterways Renewed (AWR!) Program. Once completed, the NSIT will collect most of the sewer flow from the North Hill neighborhood. The tunnel will collect flows from four combined sewer overflow (CSO) points. During typical storms, the NSIT will prevent combined sewer overflows to the Cuyahoga River. 

Fieldwork Continues in North Hill Area

The City of Akron is performing fieldwork in the North Hill area, as part of the City of Akron’s CSO program.  The work includes soil borings, land surveying, and survey work in the Cuyahoga River.  The work will take place along Riverside Drive and into the Cascade Valley Metro Park – Chuckery Area.

The fieldwork is needed to design one of the last projects in the City’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated Consent Decree. 

Residents will see trucks and workers in the road rights-of-way, in easements, or in the park. All workers will have badges to identify that they are part of the project.
