Eliot Sewer and Stormwater Project

Environmental Services is designing a sewer repair and stormwater management project in the southern part of the Eliot neighborhood to replace or repair approximately 10,000 feet of deteriorating public sewer pipes that are 100 to 120 years old. The project will include constructing green street planters in the right-of-way on public streets in key locations. This project will reduce the risks of street flooding and basement sewer backups, accommodate future growth in the area, and help keep stormwater out of the sewer system. Environmental Services installs and maintains the planters, and there is no cost to the adjacent property owners. 

Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2017 and be complete in fall 2018.
