PHASE I SEWER EXPANSION PROJECT

The 30-year plan is comprised of three 10-year phases, predominantly focused on sewer expansion. Each phase consists of multiple individual projects that will proceed through permitting.

The plan is designed to reduce nutrient pollution in embayments to a level consistent with regulatory thresholds know as Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs).

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The first phase of sewering will occur in the village of Centerville. The new gravity sewer will be installed in portions of Craigville Beach Road, Strawberry Hill Road, Wequaquet Lane and Phinney’s Lane ..  Construction will begin September 2021 and extend through the Spring of 2023.

The project is being coordinated with the Vineyard Wind 1 Project.  Coordination of the two projects will reduce construction-related disruption to local roads and neighborhoods, and save taxpayer dollars. In 2018, the Town of Barnstable and Vineyard Wind entered into a Host Community Agreement
that allows Vineyard Wind to:

  • “land” electric cables to at Covell’s Beach
  • install electric duct banks in Town Roads from Covell’s Beach to a new substation in Independence Park

In return, Vineyard Wind agrees to:

  • Make cash payments to the Town ($16M over 25 years, plus an additional $60,000 for each year the project is in operation beyond 25 years)
  • Resurface all impacted roadways
  • Resurface Covell’s Beach parking lot
  • Make $80K payment for repairs to Covell’s Beach bath house
