The Sewer Pump Station Replacements Project includes the replacement of four existing sewer pumping stations (Eastleigh, Hancock, Little Farm and Shawmut). These four sewer pump stations serve the residential homes in the areas of Angelica Drive, Ditullio Drive, Hancock Lane, Little Farms Road, Brigham Road and Shawmut Terrace.
These improvements will result in the following benefits:
Much needed upgrading of the aged pumps and infrastructure
Elimination of out-dated ejector technology
Provide greater efficiency and improve safety
Reduction of maintenance.
The design will also include the standardization of the pump stations, which will provide greater enhancements to safety, serviceability, alarms and control, and availability of parts. Also, included in this project is an upgrade of various utilities and electrical services, as well as improvements for parking on Little Farms Road for visitors of the Carol Getchell Trail & boat launch.
Project Status: On schedule with the originally anticipated completion date.
Construction is scheduled for the 2017 & 2018 construction seasons.
At least some work will be done at each of the four sites during this year, and the remainder of the work will be completed during next year's construction season. Erosion control and test pits will be conducted at each site, as well as utility work at Shawmut Pump Station.
