According to a press release, Landmark Recovery will be going before the sewer department in September with a proposal for several substance use disorder treatment facilities on George Washington Blvd. and Rockland Street near the Hingham Courthouse to treat the privately insured and the Mass Health insured as well as a juvenile treatment facility.
Two buildings would be located on George Washington Boulevard: a three story, 120 bed, chemical dependency treatment facility of approximately 55,000 square feet on a 24,000 square foot footprint and a single story 28,096 square foot juvenile chemical dependency facility of 60 beds. Another larger building would be constructed on Rockland Street, along with ten smaller buildings to provide longer-term individualized care.
These buildings would provide a comprehensive campus of chemical dependency treatment from detox through rehabilitation and long term behavioral care. The total beds proposed for the combined project is 460.
Massachusetts sewage flow guidelines call for 150 gallons per day of wastewater treatment, per bed, which gives a total requirement of 69,000 for the project. Landmark will also be seeking water from the Weir River Water Company.
In July 2004, Cliff Boyle was unsuccessful in his attempt to obtain a permit for a flexible residential development from the Hingham Planning Board due to issues with sewer service to the site.
