Project Background

Huron Ave Contract A, Huron Ave Contract B and the Concord Ave Contract are part of the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority’s (MWRA) Long Term Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Control Plan for the Alewife Brook. Sewer separation and stormwater management in these contract areas will separate existing combined sewers and provide dedicated sanitary sewers and stormwater drains.

About The Design

The principal goals of this project are to improve water quality in the Alewife Brook by eliminating combined sewer overflows; protect Fresh Pond Reservoir from potential contaminants; and, control the occurrences of street flooding and sewer and stormwater backups on public and private properties. Prior to beginning design, building and system investigation for the entire project area was undertaken by the City’s consultants. Those investigations are necessary to understand how and where discharges from the sanitary sewer, sump pump, yard drain, driveway drain, stairwell drain and roof drains leave private property. In addition to the sewer separation work, the infrastructure design for each project area will include upgrades of water, cable, gas and electric.

The City will work with the community in developing an approach to surface improvements that address pedestrian, vehicular, landscaping, and environmental concerns for each of the project areas. Community meetings will be held to discuss neighborhood concerns and potential design solutions.
