The town of New Glasgow is about to commence a major sewer separation project along Westville Road.
Sewer separation project
The work involves the separation of storm water from the combined sewer system. Separating the storm water from the sanitary sewer system reduces the amount of sewerage treated at East River Environmental Control Center and reduces the potential for overflow into the East River during heavy rain events.
A new storm sewer line will be in installed on a portion of Westville Road and on neighbouring streets.
The project is scheduled to start Wednesday and continue for four months.
The contractor for the project is C. F. Construction of New Glasgow.
