Why does Harrisville need new Wastewater System?

The current system was built in the late 1970’s and has had limited improvement and investment in the past 40 years. Specific concern:

Recent groundwater monitoring has revealed probable leakage from the wastewater lagoons.
Condition assessments have shown that some sewers and manholes are serverly deteriorated.
The city’s wastewater pump stations are operating beyond their design lives.

What will be done?

There are the major components of this project:

Pump Station Improvements
Manhole and Sewer Rehabilitation
Wastewater Lagoon Stabilization
