The Town of Chatham began its most recent wastewater facilities planning process in the mid 1990’s and has developed a plan for implementation. This construction project is the next step in completing the implementation of the plan.
The initial sanitary sewer (collection system) construction project (Phase 1A - completed in 2012) provides sewer service along several major routes in Chatham including Main Street/Route 28, George Ryder Road, Barn Hill Road, and the Meadow View neighborhood. Phase 1B was recently completed and included installation of sanitary sewer in the vicinity of Stage Harbor Road and Cedar Street.
In the Fall of 2014 - Phase 1C-1 will begin. Please visit the Areas of Work page to see a description of these areas. Please visit the Schedule page for an update on the schedules. Please visit our listing of Chatham Businesses for more information. Requests to add a
business can be sent to the Town or the project manager listed on our Contacts Page.
Due to the varying topography of Chatham, there may be properties that, although adjacent to a gravity sewer, may be required to pump to the gravity system because of the elevation of the home or septic system relative to the elevation of the road.
Every effort will be made to minimize the inconvenience and impact on area businesses, residents, and the public. The Town is asking for, and appreciates, the public’s patience and cooperation during this environmentally important project.
