Good Morning, Burlington!
One of the requests from the recent survey was for more information about public works projects in Burlington, and periodically I’ll be sending updates about what’s going on. Here’s what’s in store this summer at the DPW:
The sewer pump stations/force mains at Partridge Lane and Francis Wyman Road are being reconstructed. This project uses funds appropriated by Town Meeting to reconstruct these two stations. Francis Wyman’s force main (the pipe that takes waste water under pressure to its discharge point) was replaced last year.
There is a smaller water service replacement project taking place on Belmont/Cormier Rd.
The DPW is also in the process of addressing the infiltration of groundwater into our sewage pipes from cracks, separations, and other sources of leaks. We pay for every gallon of sewage that crosses the border into Woburn en route to the treatment plant at Deer Island in the harbor, so decreasing this infiltration will save the town money and prevent us from sending groundwater to be treated.
For a full list of DPW projects, you can reference the DPW website.
If you appreciate having town information land in your inbox without your having to go looking for it, please consider a Hive membership for $6 monthly or $60 annually.
