  • Dudley Square Sewer Separation Project
    wet weather the stormwater gradually takes up the greater portion of the space in the pipe and depending upon the duration and intensity of the storm may exceed the capacity of the combined sewer system The excess combined flows are transported to overflow conduits that discharge into a local body of water in this case the Fort Point Channel and Boston Harbor The resulting discharge of both sanitary sewage and stormwater flows from these overflow pipes is known as a CSO combined sewer overflow Project Updates 1 9 2015 Project Update 11 14 2014 Project Update 10 17 2014 Project Update 9 19 2014 Project Update 8 15 2014 Project Update 7 18 2014 Project Update 6 20 2014 Project Update 5 16 2014 Project Update 4 11 2014 Project Update 3 7 2014 Project Update 2 14 2014 Project Update 1 10 2014 Project Update 12 13 2013 Project Update 11 15 2013 Project Update 10 18 2013 Project Update 9 3 2013 Project Update 8 16 2013 Project Update 7 17 2013 Project Update 6 21 2013 Project Update 5 22 2013 Streets Completed List 5 17 2013 Project Update 4 12 2013 Project Update 3 15 2013 Project Update 2 15 2013 Project Update 1 18 2013 Project Update 7 2 2012 Dudley Square Street Listing 7 1 2012 Dudley Square Project Overview Overflows from the Dudley Square area discharge to the Fort Point Channel through the BOS 070 outfall This sewer separation project will replace the existing single combined system with two separate systems one for sanitary sewage and one for stormwater When construction is complete sanitary sewage will be conveyed to the MWRA s Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant while stormwater will be discharged to the Fort Point Channel via the Dorchester Brook Conduit resulting in a substantial reduction in CSOs As a result the impact on the Fort Point Channel and Boston Harbor from the harmful effects of pollution from CSOs will be substantially reduced In addition the Commission is concurrently replacing water mains in the area to minimize impacts by reducing the need to return at a later date to complete the work Project Area The Dudley Square Sewer Separation Project encompasses an area roughly bounded by Melnea Cass Boulevard to the north Washington Street to the west Circuit Street and Whiting Street to the south and Dearborn Street and Albany Street to the east including a portion of Hawthorne Street Cedar Street Thornton Street and Oakland Street and Malcolm X Park A map of the project area is attached for reference The area is home to residential neighborhoods a vibrant small business district and commercial businesses Scope of Work The work includes installation of the following Contract No 11 309 009 4 607 linear feet of sanitary sewers 3 870 linear feet of water mains 9 539 linear feet of storm drains 2 514 linear feet of rehabiliated sewer drain 5 435 linear feet of water mains Building Disconnections In addition to
