Challenge

Lakeville/Middleborough MBTA commuter rail opened a new station in 1997. Most of the commuter rail ridership drove to the station from the surrounding suburban area. There was also a need for additional local affordable housing in the area, however the lack of sewers prevented a development density that allowed for both market rate and affordable housing. Furthermore, land values put a premium on real estate in the area, so a compact solution was necessary.

Highlights

  • Enabled transit-oriented development adjacent to commuter rail station
  • Compact system utilizing Membrane Bioreactor and Rapid Infiltration Basins
  • Ultraviolet disinfection prior to groundwater discharge
  • Design-build-operate delivery minimizes owner’s risk exposure
  • completed in 2009
