2019-132 Pump Station Rehabilitation Program

The Rendezvous Lane Pump Station was constructed in 1975, and is past the end of its design life. The station operates using outdated technology, which uses compressed air to eject sewage from the pump station through a force main and into the receiving sewers on Route 6A. The pump station and its electrical components are located well below the 100-year flood zone elevation, and in recent years, the area surrounding the Rendezvous Lane Pump Station has become completely inundated with floodwater on several occasions. In January of 2017, seawater infiltrated the pump station creating major electrical and mechanical issues. WPCD staff worked through freezing temperatures for several weeks to restore the station to proper working order. It is only a matter of time before another similar flooding event occurs, as these flooding events have been occurring more frequently in recent years. In addition to these issues, the Rendezvous Lane Pump Station has no on-site backup generator and requires a portable generator to restore the station during power outages. Unfortunately, the station is impossible to access when the area is inundated with floodwaters. As part of the WPCD Pump Station rehabilitation program, this project has been fast tracked as a top priority due to the likelihood of failure (extremely high), and the consequence of failure (sewage backing up into homes or into Barnstable Harbor). The new station will be designed for maximum coastal resiliency, moving all vital components outside of the 100-year flood zone.

2019-134 South Street Sewer Rehabilitation

This project funds the first two phases of construction for the South Street sewer rehabilitation project, which seeks to improve the condition and capacity of South Street sewers. Phase 1 involves the replacement of the existing clay gravity sewer main between High School Road and Old Colony Road with a new larger PVC sewer main and replacement of all sewer laterals in this area to the lot line. Phase 1 also includes the relocation of the Kalmus Beach Pump Station force main discharge in order to free up additional capacity on South Street. Phase 2 of this project includes the replacement of the existing clay gravity sewer main between Old Colony Road and School Street with a new larger PVC sewer main and replacement of all laterals in this area to the lot line. Both phases carry funds for survey work, the replacement of disturbed water and drainage infrastructure, and a full width mill and overlay of the road surface. Phase 3 is anticipated to involve the relining of sewers between High School Road and Sea Street and will be carried out later.

2017-099 Maher Carbon Treatment System

As the result of the final USEPA Health Advisory, the use of 3 wells at the Maher wellfield, that currently exceed the new standard, has been significantly curtailed. The Town has entered into an agreement with the Town of Yarmouth to provide water from their system through an emergency interconnection in the vicinity of the Maher wellfield. Due to the high cost of purchasing Yarmouth water (estimated at $1.25 Million annually), the DPW proposes to design and construct a carbon treatment system at the location of the Maher wellfield treatment plant; the system will be housed in a structure, allowing for year-round use. The building will be sized to accommodate an additional treatment system to be constructed next year for the removal of 1, 4-dioxane, an additional CEC, that is forcing us to purchase water from Yarmouth for blending to reduce the level below the State standard. In order to design a treatment system for 1, 4-dioxane, a pilot test must be conducted in order to determine the efficacy of treatment and the necessary component parts.

2018-094 Martsons Mills Elementary School Improvements

The three portable / modular structures located at the facility are joined to the main building by a covered hallway. These structures are in excess of twenty-five years old and have completely outlived their useful lives. As they sit and deteriorate due to insect infestation and non-use. They have become a nuisance and continue to attract vandals. The space is not salvageable and they need to be removed. The project involves the design, permitting, abatement, disconnection, labor and disposal fees to demolish and dispose of the temporary structures. Part of the work will include hazardous materials testing and evaluation of the existing school building. Additional work will be accomplished as required based on discovered conditions during evaluation and demolition.

Funded by $253,740 of the February 2019 Bonds - 0.95% of the 2019 Capital Budget

2018-096 Armory Building Improvements

This project will fund the renovation of the Armory. The work will be accomplished in phases to allow the Town maximum flexibility regarding its ultimate usage. The phases will proceed as follows. There has been a long, unsuccessful, history trying to find a suitable tenant for this facility, with one of the main deterrents being its existing condition. This project arrests that deterioration, and gives the Town flexibility regarding its ultimate use. If the Town chooses the municipal solution it would leverage the Armory’s unique location (adjacent to existing Town Campus) to provide key Town offices that are one level, ADA friendly, and easily accessible by the public. The remainder of Town Hall can then have additional security measures placed on it to protect those employees that do not need routine public access. If the Town elects to not pursue this series of CIPs, but instead demolish the facility that has been estimated to cost approximately $1,300,000, and then someone will have to pay to develop the empty lot.
