When the Capen Street CSO collapsed, VMS Construction was hired by the MDC to perform emergency repairs. Work included 24 hour bypass pumping, connection to an existing 8' x 8' concrete culvert, installation of approximately 120 linear feet of new 24" overflow piping up to 20 feet deep, replacement of a 5 foot diameter weir manhole, repair of 10" sanitary sewer, re-routing of 6" sanitary sewer laterals & reconnection of CSO monitoring equipment.

Work commenced Monday November 13, 2017 and by working 12 to 14 hour shifts, was completed Tuesday November 21st, in time to pave the road & open to traffic for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The old CSO was plugged from inside the culvert & filled with flo-fill the following week, to complete all work items.
