The goal of the Little Pond Sewer Service Area project is to improve water quality in Little Pond.  The project includes connection of approximately 1,400 properties on the Maravista peninsula and the eastern portion of Falmouth Heights to the existing Town sewer system, construction of approximately 16 miles of sewer pipe (gravity main, low pressure main, and force main), and construction of 2 new sewer lift stations, one at the end of Alphonse Street and 1 on Spring Bars Road.

Three other related projects have recently been completed:
  1. Upgrades to the Main Wastewater Treatment Plant at 154 Blacksmithshop Road
  2. Construction of 2 new treated wastewater recharge beds at the Town's Main Wastewater Treatment Plant
  3. Upgrades at the 3 existing wastewater lift stations affected by the Little Pond Sewer Service Area flow
These projects were funded by Town Meeting Article 28 in April 2014.
