Boston Sewer Separation Project February Update

Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC) is undergoing a separation of the combined sewer system. The project’s purpose is to reduce substantially pollution in the Fort Point Channel and Boston Harbor by decreasing overflow from the combined sewer and rain water pipes during storms.

Project Update
The contractor excavated test pits on Dorchester Avenue from the West Broadway intersection to Foundry Street in front of the Gillette building entrance, and performed a point repair of the sewer on A Street between West Broadway and Athens Street. The subcontractor, Insituform, began installing the structural liners on A Street, completing the 24-inch liners from West First Street to Wormwood Street and 16-inch liners from West Broadway to West Third Street. The contractor's work schedule is Monday through Friday, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM.

Progress/Work Completed (since 1/10/14)
Excavated test pits along Dorchester Ave. from West Broadway to Foundry St. Installed CIPP sewer liners on A St. from West Broadway to Wormwood St.
Installation of 24" structural liner on A St.
