Greetings! This page is dedicated to providing news and updates for residents and businesses in our host community of Johnston.

Central Avenue Sewer Project

A new sewer line is being constructed on Central Avenue and Old Pocasset Road by Parkside Utility Construction on behalf of the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC). This will allow residents and businesses in the immediate area to connect to the sewer line instead of relying on individual septic systems. The sewer will connect to the Narragansett Bay Commission facilities. Connection is at the discretion of the resident and business-connection is not mandatory.

To the left, you'll see the latest resident notifications regarding construction. The project is slated to be complete in early 2013.
