The Seekonk River Interceptor, located in Providence, Rhode Island and owned by the Narragansett Bay Commission, is a combined sewer system originally built in the late 1800s. Portions of the interceptor are exposed and severely deteriorated, allowing sewage to escape at low tide and river water to infiltrate during high tide. Rehabilitation of this sewer system is discussed.
