The Cross-Irondequoit tunnel was originally desic;Jned as a tl:"unk sewer
whose main fUnct;i.on was to convey the combineel flow to a pumping station.
This system (Fig. 1-1) is located in a developing section of Rochester, New
York. It is currently underutili~ed, and it is not expectep to reach
cap.acity for another 50 yea:t::'s. ~he system studied consists of a 7 £t elia ...
meter, 3 mile long, pO:t::'tion of the Itondequoit Creek interceptor, which
ends at the Browncroft junction chamber, followed by a short 12 ft diametet
section joining the junction chamber to the transition chamber and a 16 ft
diameter, 6 mile long, tunnel connecting the transition chamber and the
pumping station. From there the flow is pumped through pressurized conduits
to a waste water treatment plant. Eventually,another tunnel will also drain
into the wet well.
