System improvements, upgrades and projects

We are continuously working to maintain and improve the water system.  Some of the major projects we are currently working on involve the installation of new, or the replacement of existing, equipment and facilities needed to provide safe, reliable water service.

Route 101 Water Main Replacement

Nov 20, 2019 New Hampshire

Project Goals and Objectives

Replace aging water mains to reduce leaks and the probability of main breaks.

Scope of Work

Replace approximately 3,000 feet of water main across the marsh between Tide Mill Road and Church Street. The existing main is more than 60 years old, has leaks and would be very expensive to repair. The new main will cross under Route 101 near Tide Mill Road, run along the south side of the highway to Glade Path, then back to Church Street.
