May 7, 2018 - May 11, 2018

The Union Street Pump Station Project will be resuming during the week of May 7, 2018. General clean-up, manhole repair, and paving will be taking place. There will be detours in place while paving is occurring. All Eastside traffic will be detoured via Eastern Avenue, Kenney Field Drive, or School Street (northbound only) while paving Union Street (Pump Station site to Oak Street). Once paving is completed past Pear Street/Union Street, regular eastside traffic patterns will resume. Two-Way traffic will occur on Townsend Avenue while the crew is paving Oak Street. There may be traffic delays while the crew is paving across Townsend Avenue.
Please respect the flaggers and signage to insure your safety and allow the crew to complete their job as quickly as possible. Thank you for your cooperation! 

May 4, 2018

We are handling repairs to manhole covers on Union Street and Oak Street as part of the on going work for the Union Street Pump Station Upgrade Project.

November 22, 2017

Sargent has completed trench paving on the Project. The crew put in a very long day yesterday and took advantage of the favorable temperatures and a very big thank you goes out to them for their efforts. Traffic should no longer be impacted on Oak and Townsend. There may be some minimal traffic detours at or near the pump station site if needed. Work will now concentrate at the pump station site. Manhole adjustments and the final overlay will occur next spring when the asphalt plants open. Stay Tuned and Happy Thanksgiving!

November 14, 2017

The crew should be connecting the force main to the manhole on Oak Street tomorrow. Once done, the main will be tested. After tomorrow, traffic should be back to normal until next week. Next week, Sargent plans on prepping and paving the trench on the 21st and 22nd. The 20th looks to be too cold to lay asphalt. The plan is to do Oak Street on Tuesday the 21st. Therefore, two-way traffic on Townsend Ave. and Oak Street closure will occur on the 21st. The District will place signage on Oak and Townsend on the 20th. Once Oak is paved, the crew will move to Union St. and prep and pave it during the remainder of the 21st and all of the 22nd. Once paving is done, the crew will focus on the pump station site at the head of the harbor.

November 8, 2017

Sargent plans on working on Oak Street on November 10, 13, 14, and 15. The work will require that “on street” parking be eliminated on Oak Street and Townsend Ave. on these days. As a reminder, Oak Street will be closed to thru traffic and only local traffic will be allowed. Local Oak Street traffic will be allowed to enter and exit at each end (from the bank to Thistle – 2-way and then from West to Oak Street Provisions 2-way). Townsend Ave will become two-way. Signage will be placed at all entrances. In addition, there will be a 4 ft X 4 ft sign placed on Townsend Ave by the bank square and in front of the First advising people of the changes. In addition, dates will be attached to those signs so people can know when this is occurring.

The length of time for this project is undetermined at this time.
Hagar Enterprises of Damariscotta is in charge of this project and the project manager is Vaughn Stevens.  Any questions can be directed to Vaughn Stevens at 207-563-8588.

February 7, 2017

The Townsend Avenue Project has been completed.  We would like to thank everyone for their patience during the sewer line replacement.  We will be back in the Spring to do the final paving of Townsend Avenue.

JANUARY 30, 2017:


The Boothbay Harbor Sewer District will be replacing a section of sewer pipe from the manhole in McKown Square, in front of Tigger Leather, to a manhole located on Townsend Avenue in front of the Popcorn Shop. The purpose is to relieve a sag and restore improved flow in the line and replace the service connections to the adjacent properties. This work is being done ahead of the Maine Department of Transportation’s catch basin installation work later in March/April.
The District expects to begin work January 30, 2017. The work will take approximately one week to complete barring any unforeseen issues or bad weather. During this time, traffic will be rerouted along the By-Way back onto Townsend Avenue via Bridge Street. Because of this detour, there will be no traffic and parking along Townsend Avenue from the Square to McClintock Street. There will be traffic control and plenty of signage present to assist motorists.
The trench created for this work will be deep and wide. There should be no blasting involved because there is an existing trench. This is the reason for shutting down this section of street. The District has applied for a road opening permit from the Maine DOT. The trench will be filled at the end of each work day. Because of the tight quarters in this area, there will be no overnight parking in this area. Any vehicles found in this area will be towed at the owner’s expense.
As with any construction project, there will be inconvenience. With your cooperation, we will try to make this work go as smooth and quickly as possible. District personnel (wearing green hardhats) will be onsite throughout the work. If there are any issues please contact the onsite person or the District office at 633-4663 and we will address them as soon as practical. Again, your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

The Boothbay Harbor Sewer District serves the towns of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor, with municipal contracts with Squirrel and Capital Island in Southport. The district is governed by three trustees elected by the Town of Boothbay Harbor, which includes Boothbay in its service area under charter. In the 1990s, the voters of Boothbay Harbor granted Boothbay 30,000 gallons per day of capacity in the treatment plant.

In Boothbay, the district services the Route 27 corridor from the Boothbay/Boothbay Harbor town line to Big Al’s storage facility (near Boothbay Fire Department). It also services Country Club Road to Ocean View Cemetery, Common Drive and Chapel Street (which includes the Boothbay Resort).
