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.

Locke Road Main Replacement - Hampton

Aug 24, 2020 New Hampshire

Scope of Work

Replace approximately 3,000 feet of water main between High Street and Winnacunnet Road. The existing main is more than 60 years old and is made of asbestos-cement and cast-iron materials. Pipe material of this age and material is prone to leaks.

The old water mains are 6- and 8-inches in diameters and will be replaced with 12-inch ductile iron pipe for longer life and improved flow rates.

This project is being coordinated with a Town of Hampton sewer project, which will follow after the water main project.

Schedule

Construction began on the High Street end on June 23, and will proceed south towards Winnacunnet Road. Construction is projected to be completed by August 31.

Current Status

  • Work on Locked Road is complete, including a new main, service connections to customers, and pressure and bacteria testing.
  • A short extension will be installed between Locke Road and Colby Street. The estimated completion date is August 30.
