Current Water and Wastewater Projects


Current Construction Projects


Projects - Watermain


Projects - Sanitary Sewer

The sanitary sewer system is separate from the storm sewer system.  The sanitary system carries away domestic waste and wastewater to the treatment plant for processing.

Inflow and infiltration is when rain and or storm water gets into the sewer system.  This results in the Town processing more fluids than it should and higher flows during storms.  Our sanitary sewer systems are not designed to handle storm water and potentially back up during storm periods, resulting in basement backups. 

The Town has been undertaking a 10 year program to reduce the inflow and infiltration into the sewer system.  We continue to perform inspections for leaks in the system via smoke tests and video camera surveying and making repairs where necessary. 

We need residents to ensure your sump pump is not connected to the sanitary system (contact the Town if not sure) and make sure your sanitary clean out caps are properly secured and repaired.  Residents can also equip your home with a sanitary backwater valve to help prevent backups. 

If everyone does their share, we will reduce the rain effect on the system, preventing backups.
