Purpose and Overview

The Five Corners Sewer Project will provide sewer service to the Five Corners sewer needs area identified in the Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan. The Town of Easton has entered into an Inter-municipal Agreement (IMA) with the Town of Mansfield to obtain 165,000 gallons per day (GPD) of capacity in the MFN Regional Water Pollution Control Facility. The facility is currently undergoing an upgrade and expansion which is expected to be complete by 2020.

There are two phases to the Five Corners Sewer Project. Phase I involves the installation of a sewer force main from the area of Robert Drive in Easton to East Street in Mansfield. Phase II is currently in the design phase and will provide service to the remaining needs area via additional force main sewer, gravity sewer, and associated pump stations.

Phase I of the project will provide sewer service to the Avalon Development on Robert drive and is being funded through mitigation payments received from Avalon. Phase I is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2016. Phase II of the project is anticipated to be constructed and completed to coincide with the completion of the upgrades and expansion of the MFN Regional Water Pollution Control Facility in 2020.

Phase I of the Five Corners includes the following work:

  • The installation of 12,500 linear feet of sewer force main.
    The installation of 500 feet of gravity main and manholes.
    The installation of 1,100 feet of low pressure sewer.
    The installation of an odor control station.
