Several streets on Nantucket in the area of last Thursday’s main sewer failure have been re-opened.
As of 4 p.m. yesterday, Clean Harbors had decontaminated Easy Street, Cambridge Street, Oak Street, and Broad Street from Steamship Wharf to South Beach Street.
Work continues to decontaminate the area of South Beach Street near the road failure.
All downtown streets in the core area have been re-opened to regular traffic and parking with the exception of South Beach Street from Broad Street to Harborview Way, Sea Street, and Whaler’s Lane at South Beach Street.
Hager-Richter Geo Science, a specialty engineering firm contracted to conduct a subsurface study to determine what caused last week’s catastrophic sewer main failure, expects to have its initial study complete later today.
