Barnstable, MA – Infrastructure work in the first phase construction of the Town of Barnstable’s Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP) is underway with the Strawberry Hill Sewer Expansion project. This phase entails construction of the first pump station that will be required in the CWMP.

National Electrical Contractors Association contractor, Chapman Construction Group, Inc. (CCGI), based in Sandwich and working as the electrical subcontractor to general contractor CC Construction, has been awarded the electrical work associated with the new submersible wastewater treatment pump station. It will be constructed at the junction of Strawberry Hill Road and Craigville Beach Road. CCGI’s electrical project scope entails the installation of the pump station’s main electrical service, generator, automatic transfer switch enclosures, variable frequency drives, control systems, and all electrical wiring.

A group of officials led by Congressman William Keating (MA-9) and State Senator Julian Cyr (Cape & Islands) met recently in Hyannis at a groundbreaking event for the Strawberry Hill Road Sewer Expansion Project.

Barnstable’s CWMP is a town-wide plan designed to protect Barnstable’s coastal waters, ponds and drinking waters by managing wastewater nutrient pollution and nutrient population in embayments. The project is being constructed in coordination with the Vineyard Wind 1 project. The first phase of the Barnstable CWMP project began in September and is targeted for completion in 2023.

“The installation of pump stations and related water treatment facility systems requires hands-on knowledge and experience with electrical installations that power their operation as well as the integrated control systems,” said Vicki Chapman, president of Chapman Construction.“CCGI is proud to partner with CC Construction and the Town of Barnstable in a project that is of critical importance to the CWMP, the town’s waterways and coastal waters, and Barnstable residents.”

As towns and cities throughout Massachusetts upgrade wastewater treatment facilities to ensure optimal operation and capacities, Chapman Construction Group, a WBE, DBE and VBE contractor, has successfully completed numerous wastewater purification projects for the MWRA and municipalities throughout the Bay State. The projects include wastewater pump stations in Harwich; at Cape Cod Community College in Barnstable; at Wheaton College in Norton; and at Nantucket Harbor Shimmo. CCGI has also installed electrical system upgrades to the primary and secondary water clarifiers for the Town of Barnstable Water Pollution Control Facility. The contractor is underway with new pump station installations in Harwich and Orleans on Cape Cod.
