Little Pond Sewer Service Area (LPSSA) Project

Project BackgroundLeveling Sewer Manhole Maravista Avenue
The goal of the Little Pond Sewer Service Area project was to improve water quality in Little Pond.  The project included connection of approximately 1,350 properties on the Maravista peninsula and the eastern portion of Falmouth Heights and on Teaticket Highway to the existing Town sewer system.  Approximately 16 miles of sewer pipe (gravity main, low pressure main, and force main) were installed, and 2 new sewer lift stations were constructed, one at the end of Alphonse Street and one on Spring Bars Road.

Three other related projects were also completed:
  1. Upgrades to the Main Wastewater Treatment Plant at 154 Blacksmith Shop Road
  2. Construction of 2 new treated wastewater recharge beds at the Town's Main Wastewater Treatment Plant
  3. Upgrades at the 3 existing wastewater lift stations affected by the Little Pond Sewer Service Area flow
These projects were funded by Town Meeting Article 28 in April 2014.
