Plaza Road Sewer Pump Station Improvements

Beginning the week of September 19, 2016 the Town will begin replacing the sewer pump station on Plaza Road (north side between Howard Street and Hawes Avenue).  The contractor for the project is Moriarty & Sons, Inc.  The work should take approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks to complete (weather permitting).  There is no planned interruption of sewer service during the project’s construction.  Additional notices will be provided during the project as needed.

During the first phase of the project you will see equipment and materials arriving at the site, silt fence and straw waddle barrier installed for erosion control, and a temporary bypass pumping system installed.  The second phase of work will include excavation of the site, installation of the new sewer station, and station testing.  The final phase will include the removal of the temporary pumping station, finish items (fencing, landscaping and miscellaneous), and cleanup of the site.

Of special note, on Friday, September 23, 2016 a large crane will be at the pump station site removing the existing pump station and installing the new pump station.  It would be appreciated and helpful to completing the project if no on street parking were to occur on Plaza Road that day.

Should you have any questions, please contact Michael Collins, DPW Town Engineer at (781) 246-6308, Eric Sherman, DPW Senior Civil Engineer at (781-246-6308) or Steven Fitzpatrick, DPW Water/Sewer Supervisor at (781) 246-6308.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this construction project.

Sewer Station Upgrades
Lakeview Avenue, Plaza Road, Spaulding Street

The Department of Public Works is in the planning for the upgrade of three sewer pumping stations.  The sewer stations include: Plaza Road, Spaulding Street and Lakeview Avenue.  The goal of the project is to ensure system reliability.

The project has been rebid and work will begin in May/June of 2016.

General Information regarding the stations

  • The Lakeview Avenue station was constructed in 1971.  The existing below-ground station will be completely removed and a new station placed below ground.
  • The Plaza Road station was constructed in 1968.  The existing below-ground station will be completely removed and a new station placed below ground.
  • The Spaulding Street station was constructed in 1940.  The station will be reconditioned with new pumps, controls and related equipment.

The normal life expectancy for a sewer pumping station is approximately 30 to 35 years.
