ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Raw sewage from the west part of town currently flows to the west lagoon and lift station. The majority of the flow goes directly to the lift station. The lack of screening leads to debris plugging up the pumps and force main. The Town proposes to direct all flow to the lagoon and install an outlet structure and influent pipe to allow the station to pump from the lagoon only. All raw sewage will flow to the lagoon. This will allow debris to be collected in the lagoon.
