Vineyard Wind reached an agreement with the Town to land submarine cables on the shore of Covell’s Beach, and will use Town roads to lay the upland cables to the substation. While Vineyard Wind installs duct bank vaults up to the substation, the Town will be installing approximately 19,000 LF gravity sewer from Route 132 to Covell’s Beach, approximately 9,300 LF of sewer force main, and one new sewer pump station. This provides a backbone for the eventual sewering of ±1,640 parcels which will remove 25.5 kg/day of total nitrogen. The Town will be saving an estimated $3,000,000 due to Vineyard Wind completing the paving, surveying, designing, etc.
