RIVERSIDE DRIVE AREA PROJECT INFORMATION
LOW PRESSURE SEWER
In 2015, the community voted to move forward with construction of a low pressure sewer system in the Riverside Drive area of Tiverton.  The system has been deemed the most cost effective and efficient way to provide sewer service to this area.  A low pressure sewer involves the installation of a grinder pump for each property.

The project will include both public right of way work for installation the sewer lines and curb to curb repaving as well as the necessary private property work to complete the connection to the building.  The project assessment is a not-to-exceed cost of $18,000 for all public and private property work.

Below are links to materials that were provided at the public education meetings.
