There are no major projects just now beyond normal maintenance. A program to replace main sewer lines that had breaks or were past their useful lifetimes and the replacement of water lines and laterals that were leaking is complete.

Some things being worked on in 2018:

Replacing manhole covers with collars to prevent rain and snow melt from entering the sewer system.
lake sampling related to extension of the intake,
cold water treatment challenges,
HOTFAP and the progress so far in identifying and removing or upgrading heating oil tanks,
plant control in the shallow areas of lake serena,
updated ordinances,
"meet-the-operators" and
stop&drain valve operation (valves operated incorrectly cause water waste).
