We are pleased to report that the entirety of the downtown vacuum sewer system has been returned to stable operation and handled the gradual increase in flows overnight from residential properties.
At this time, ALL users can begin to gradually return to normal water use: the sewer emergency order is lifted!
We are grateful for the dedicated DPW team, our engineering and operations team AECOM, Woodard and Curran, Jimmy Roderick and his team and the Robert B. Our Co. for their long hours and hard work to ensure this unfortunate storm impact could be swiftly repaired.
All staff involved in this emergency response appreciate your patience over the last 48 hours.
Without your cooperation from businesses and the community, restoring vacuum system capacity would have encountered more time-consuming difficulties.
Cheers to safe, sanitary and stable wastewater disposal in Provincetown, and bring on the Monsters, Myths & Legends. Happy Carnival!
