[ARCHIVED] Sewer System Survey:

The Town of Narragansett’s Engineering Department will be performing an Infiltration/Inflow Survey in Congdon Street area of the Town. The study area is limited to the southeast portion of the Pier neighborhood. The purpose of the survey is to locate sources of infiltration/inflow in the sewer system. Infiltration/Inflow (I/I) is water that enters the sewers from cracked or defective pipes, as well as from private yard drains, roof leaders, and sump pumps. I/I can overload the sewer system causing backups, flooded basements, or overflows to the streets. It also increases sewer rates because the I/I is transported to the wastewater treatment facility where it is unnecessarily treated.
