Surry Hydraulic Improvements and Force Main Installation



HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, is planning sanitary sewer system improvements to your community. The entire project includes pipelines, new pump stations, and a storage tank. The pipelines and pump stations will bring sewage flows generated in the Town of Surry and vicinity to the existing HRSD pipe located in Smithfield. The existing Town Wastewater Treatment Plant will be replaced with a new pump station. A storage tank will be placed at the existing pump station at the Surry West Industrial Park, and that existing pump station will be upgraded. The pipeline will be located along the road in existing right-of-ways and easements. The Contractor will maintain a clean worksite and minimize traffic disruption. The answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are provided here
