Attention: Coldest air so far this winter is here for the weekend. Take preventive measures to keep your water pipes from freezing.
This project is the third phase of a multi year sewer separation project in East Boston. These projects are being undertaken to separate the combined sewer system by installing new sewer and drain pipes. This will improve water quality by reducing the number and volume of combined sewer overflows.
Construction on these projects will take place under separate contracts broken into various project areas. Construction is expected to continue through 2030.
