Flood Mitigation Efforts

In the Spring of 2010, flood waters from the Pawtuxet River inundated the Warwick Sewer Authority's advanced wastewater treatment facility at 125 Arthur W. Devine Boulevard and several of its remote pumping stations. Since then, WSA, in conjunction with the engineering firm AECOM, has developed a series of flood mitigation efforts meant to increase our ability to continue to provide sanitary sewer service to the citizens of Warwick during significant rainfall and flooding events.

Listed below are several documents detailing the effects of the flooding of 2010, and our plans to improve the levee and interior drainage system at the facility, elevate or relocate critical pumping stations, and modify affected structures to protect against future flooding.
