Notice for Downtown Sewer Abutters

sewer abutters thumbnail

In March 2023 it is anticipated that you will receive notice from the Orleans Board of Health notifying you that you have one year to connect to the new downtown wastewater system.  Approximately 400 people will receive this notice at the same time. This means that there will be a big rush to hire engineers to design 400 sewer connections and then hire contractors to install the 400 sewer connections all within one year. This is going to put a big strain on our local engineers and contractors. That is why we are sending you this notice to wholeheartedly encourage you to hire an engineer as soon as possible and then line up your contractors to install your connection.

By hiring an engineer now you may possibly relieve yourself of potential difficulty in the upcoming year.  The process may seem quite confusing but your engineer and us at the Orleans Dept. of Public Work & Natural Resources are here to help you and walk you through the process.

Please start the process as soon as you can.

Please note that our list of engineers and contractors are not an endorsement of them.  We supply them for your convenience only.  You are welcome to use any Massachusetts Registered Civil or Environmental Professional Engineer.
