Abstract:

The Water Resources Development Act of 1990, Public Law 101-640 authorized the Corps of Engineers Corps, in consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency EPA, to conduct a wastewater conveyance feasibility study for transporting contaminants from the Central Landfill site and other sources of pollution in Rhode Island to a wastewater treatment facility in Cranston, Rhode Island, through the use of a regional connector system. The study strategy was to develop and assess options to address future wastewater conveyance needs. Sites are located in Cranston and Johnston, Rhode Island. Several options were identified based on analysis of the citys existing sewer system, review of the citys wastewater flow projections, and coordination with the city. The study options include a combination of improvements to the existing system and construction of new sewers and pumping stations.
