The York Street Pump Station and Connecticut River Crossing Project is a cornerstone project of the Commission’s Integrated Wastewater Plan and the $550M Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Renewal Program (WWIRP).
The project, which broke ground in 2019, replaces the original 1938 York Street Pump Station, with a new, state-of-the art facility with increased pumping capacity to convey more wastewater from the City across the river to the Springfield Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility on Bondi’s Island.
As part of the project, three new wastewater conveyance pipes were installed in the Connecticut River. The three new pipes add system redundancy and replace two existing pipes, one installed in the 1930s and the other in the 1970s.
This integrated projects addresses multiple needs at once, including:
- Climate Resiliency
- Infrastructure Renewal
- Environmental Protection
- System Redundancy
The project is financed with a $137M low-interest loan from the Massachusetts Clean Water Trust State Revolving Fund (SRF).

The Commission recognizes the critical need for infrastructure investment and renewal and in 2021 initiated the $550 million Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Renewal Program (WWIRP), which includes the new York Street Pump Station and Connecticut River Crossing Project.
The Commission is pleased to invite the public to tour the new York Street Pump Station to see the work taking place to modernize our water and wastewater infrastructure.
