Welcome to the Town of Chatham Collection System Construction Project Website

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 completed in 2014 and included installation of sanitary sewer in the vicinity of Stage Harbor Road and Cedar Street and the upgrade of the Stage Harbor Pumping Station.   Phase 1C-1 and 1C-2 sewer work, servicing several roads within the Oyster Pond watershed, was completed in 2015 and 2019 respectively.

In the Fall of 2019 - Phase 1C-3&4 began construction, serving additional roads within the Oyster Pond watershed. Phase 1D-1 also began construction as part of the regional connection project with the Town of Harwich. In the Fall of 2020 - Phase 1E began construction at Stony Hill / Crowell Road in coordination with stormwater improvements.

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 these environmentally important projects.
