Given the current sewer emergency specifically related to the dated vacuum system occurring in a limited part of Provincetown, it is nice to hear that some of our Part-Timers/members are opening their homes to friends in Town to provide some relief. However, please keep in mind that even if you are on a non-affected part of the sewer system (see map below) you should be conserving water usage. If you are on a private system (septic system) please help your neighbors with relief.
As you are also probably aware, businesses and restaurants have been impacted. Once they can re-open please make your restaurant reservations and shop locally. We certainly want to help support our Community Partner Businesses just as we did during the pandemic.
To be clear, the problem as we understand it, is related to an older part of the sewer system (the vacuum system). Regardless, all sewer users should be conserving water usage including flushing. For those on private systems thanks again for helping those neighbors affected.
Now more than ever, we need to fix, update and expand the sewer system. So you can get up to speed on this very important, and now more pressing than ever, topic here are informative links for those that could not make the last Zoom Meeting where the Department of Public Works Director presented the Town’s sewer plan.
