19 Ryder Street Extension

Ryder Street Extension, Provincetown (2011), by David W. Dunlap. 
Vacuum Pump Station

Hiding under Ye Olde Cape Codde shell is the heart of a 21st-century sewage disposal system: a 6,000-gallon tank, two wastewater pumps and four vacuum pumps that essentially suck large slugs of wastewater through PVC connector pipes from domestic valve pits all around town and then propel it out to the treatment plant at 200 Route 6. It began operating in 2003. • Map ¶ Posted 2013-08-20
