SOUTH HARTFORD CONVEYANCE/STORAGE
TUNNEL and SHAFT CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

The  South Hartford Conveyance and Storage Tunnel runs from West Hartford
to the Hartford Water Pollution Control Facility on Brainard Road, and is a key
piece of  The Metropolitan District’s 20-year Clean Water Project that aims to
safeguard the future of the Connecticut River.

The deep rock tunnel is about four miles long, 18 feet in diameter and will capture
sewer overflows and help keep untreated wastewater out of the Connecticut River.
The project is being built in five construction packages. The deep tunnel and shaft
work is underway with a contract value of $279.4 Million.

Please join us for an Update on
New England’s largest waste water project!

2017 Engineering Excellence Awards

The ACEC/CT Engineering Excellence Awards  honor the very best of Connecticut’s engineers and the projects they have created for our citizens. We congratulate the engineers for their creativity and professionalism.

We also want to thank the clients and owners for making these projects possible. Their vision inspires us to greater achievements. And thanks to the many other professionals: architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers and others who contributed to the effort and built the project from the engineers’ designs. In a real sense, these are team awards; without your effort, these projects would not be possible.
