Why are pressure sewers being installed instead of gravity mains?

Small diameter pressure sewers can be installed at a much lower cost and with much less disturbance than gravity sewers. This will allow sewers to be installed into the planned areas in a much shorter timeframe and will allow the Town to make it optional for property owners to connect. Please review the presentation made to the Town Council on Aug. 2, 2021 for additional information.
