Attention BWSC Customers. Beginning Tuesday March 7th renovations will commence on the front entrance of 980 Harrison Ave. Therefore, there will be no accessibility to the building via the double doors until further notice. A temporary side entrance in order to conduct business will be made available. The temporary entrance is in compliance with ADA regulations and our security team will be stationed there to provide assistance as needed.
The three-phase Roxbury project involves upgrading our water and sewer systems and installing new storm drains to separate the stormwater flow from the existing combined sewers. Due to the complexity of the project, traffic detours will be implemented during construction.
