Water / Sewer

Transmission Main Reinstatement
Water Pumping Station
The Town of Longmeadow purchases its water from the City of Springfield. The Longmeadow water system begins at the Water Pumping Station located on Forest Glen Road in Longmeadow. From this pumping station, the Town of Longmeadow is serviced by approximately 96 miles of water distribution mains. These water mains deliver water to the town’s 5,600 metered water accounts and supply 16,000 residents.

Sewer Pumping Station
The Longmeadow Sewer Department maintains approximately 90 miles of sewer pipe. The sewage is primarily gravity fed to the Emerson Road Sewer Pumping Station. From the pumping station, the sewage is pumped through a 24-inch pressure main directly to Springfield Bondi’s Island. The sewer plant is protected by an emergency stand-by generator that has the capacity to run the electrical demands for the entire plant.
Blockage Reporting
Although preventative maintenance is done on a regular basis, sewer main blockages can occur. If you suspect a sewer main back-up or have a blocked sewer connection, during normal working hours 7:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. on weekdays call 413-567-3400. After normal working hours and on weekends, call the Police Department at 413-567-3311. For more information, review our FAQs.

Infrastructure Maintenance
In an effort to maintain and upgrade the town system, the Public Works Department continually upgrades water and sewer infrastructure with replacement of older water lines, hydrants, and related facilities. The project funds are approved by residents at town meetings. The department also maintains a 1 million-gallon water storage tank located off Academy Drive, which is used to improve pressure to the easterly area of the town.
