CSO Control Plan

The City of Newport has over 90 miles of sanitary sewer pipes, many of which have been in operation for over 100 years. Prior to the 1970's, many of these pipes were designed as combined sewers- collecting both sanitary sewage as well as storm water during wet weather events. Since the 1970's the City has constructed several projects to separate the storm water connections from the sanitary sewer to reduce the number of CSO Events.

Addressing the occurrences of combined sewer overflows is an extremely complex issue for which the City of Newport is committed.  The City is working to identify and implement improvements to prevent the occurrences of overflows in order to be in compliance with RIDEM and EPA Combined Sewer Overflow Policies.
