Major Flooding Affects Sewage Treatment Plant

May 28, 2012 – Major flooding city-wide has caused pump failures and flooding at the Atlantic Avenue Secondary Sewage Treatment Plant. 

Homeowners are asked not to flush any non-essential water until the situation is addressed.

The portion of the plant that pumps sewage into the facility is under water. Pumps are being used to draw water from the area of the main pumps to allow an assessment of the damage.

Crews are responding to the emergency and the Emergency Operations Control Group is convening at 7 am. A media briefing will be held at 9 am at North Central Fire Station at 60 Water St. S.

A further update will be issued as new information becomes available.
