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.
Replace aging water mains to reduce leaks and the probability of main breaks.
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.
Construction started the week May 20 and was completed the week of November 11.
The new water main was placed in service on November 11.
Deactivation of the old water main and removal of the temporary bypass pipe was completed by November 15.
Installation of fused, high density polyethylene pipe.
