The challenge

The County of Hamilton, Ohio, by order of a consent decree from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), was required to make $3.2 billion in updates to its county-wide sewer system over the ensuing 18-20 years.

The County required a third party as “monitor” to assist with its progress in meeting the EPA requirements and chose to engage Plante Moran Cresa (PMC). The monitor is considered by both Hamilton County and the EPA an essential part of the sewer update project.

The solution

PMC established schedule dates, aligned financial resources to accelerate the project’s completion, and created a compliance and financial tracking system that allows both PMC and Hamilton County to monitor progress with real-time data throughout the duration of the project.

The benefit

PMC is providing added value through extensive experience providing program management/monitoring services. The engagement also provides a welcome and well-managed layer of confidentiality and security to the entire project on behalf of the County.
