North Kingstown is upgrading its wastewater system by installing sewers in targeted areas. In 2013, a sewer line was installed in southern Post Road (south of Quonset and Route 403). On June 17, 2014 North Kingstown voters passed 2 referenda by an overwhelming majority (86%) to expand sewer service to northern Post Road (north of Quonset and Route 403) and also Wickford Village's commercial properties. On May 23rd, 2016, the Town Council approved a specific plan for Wickford (W4A); in February, 2017, the Council approved the extension of the sewer line along West Main Street up to Post Road.
Cost will be born by users only; residents in the sewer district have the option to tie into the system. The project is underway and the anticipated Wickford Sewer connection date will be April 1, 2018.
