The Water Pollution Control Authority’s Wastewater Facilities Upgrade project includes construction of approximately 13,600 linear feet of new 8-inch diameter underground force main piping from the Route 7 Pump Station to the South Street Wastewater Treatment Facility. The existing Route 7 Pump Station will be demolished and replaced with a new pump station in the same location on Route 7. The existing Route 7 Wastewater Treatment Facility will be decommissioned and demolished. 

Beginning on Monday, August 22nd, typical construction hours will be extended to include a second shift from 3 p.m. to approximately 11 p.m. The first shift will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The intent of these extended hours is to reduce the duration of disruption in the upcoming work areas and expedite construction of the project.
