Peirce Island sewer plant upgrade set to begin in September

The Associated Press


Department of Public Works Director Peter Rice tells The Portsmouth Herald that construction work to upgrade the Peirce Island Wastewater Treatment Plant will begin around Sept. 19.

Rice says residents likely won't see Methuen Construction Company's heavier trucks until October. The Salem-based company was awarded the $72.8 million contract for the four-year project by City Manager John Bohenko last week.

The beginning of construction marks the conclusion of a long legal battle with several environmental agencies over the upgrade and design of the new plant.

Residents still fighting the decision to build the plant on Peirce Island are awaiting their day in court
