In 2002, Forte and Tablada, Inc. prepared a preliminary engineering report and an environment report indicating that the installation of a sewer collection system and treatment plant would improve public health and safety. By replacing individual homeowners’ sewage treatment plants with a more efficient Central Treatment Plant, the sewage system could meet the challenge of stricter effluent standards for public wastewater treatment imposed by the Department of Environmental Quality.  After the success of the application, Forte and Tablada began to work on the design for sewer, electrical upgrades, and obtaining a 404 Permit and a Coastal Management Permit for this project.

Phase I of construction provided sewer collection and central treatment for approximately 130 homes and 45 trailers, including the sewer force main, sewer gravity collection system, two lift stations, one submersible pump station, one top mounted pump station, an extended air waste water treatment plant with a sand filter and a limestone access road to the treatment plant. The collection system consists of approximately 3,000 linear feet of eight inch sanitary sewer lines and 4,670 linear feet of force main ranging in size from two to six inches connected to the two lift/pump stations. Tullier Services, Inc. was awarded the construction contract and finished Phase I at a contract price of $1,518,265.

Phase II of construction included a sewer force main, sewer gravity collection system, eight grinder stations and three submersible vortex pump stations and will provide sewer collection for approximately 250 homes and Springfield Middle School (approximately 350 students plus faculty and staff). The collection system consists of approximately 18,686 linear feet of eight inch sanitary sewer lines and 11,907 linear feet of force main ranging in size from 1.5 to 4 inches connected to the 11 lift/pump stations. Nottingham Construction was awarded the construction contract and finished Phase II at the contract price of $2,863,120.
