Abstract

The Blackstone Canal District Alliance seeks to replicate or restore the Blackstone Canal. The project explored canal conditions and its role in the combined sewer system. Analysis of public works documents and interviews generated four scenarios to separate the canal from the sewer system: 1) separate the segment and add retention basin: $5 million; 2) separate the segment and add treatment shaft: $15 million; 3) separate the entire canal: $17.5 million; 4) a complete separation of CSS: $208 million.
