Water Main Extension Project

As part of the Town’s ongoing Capital Improvement Program, the Department of Public Works will be performing a Water Main Extension Project on Main Street through installation of a new 12” ductile iron water main.  The installation of this new 12”  water main, which was recommended as part of the Town’s 2001 Water Master Plan, will create a direct connection between the center of town and the Union Street standpipes, providing for increased fire flow capacity to areas in and around the center of Town.

    Phase 1

    This phase of the project installed a new 12" concrete lined ductile iron water main on Main Street from Plain Street to Meeting Hill Lane.  This phase of work was completed in the Summer of 2018.

    Phase 2

    This Phase of the project will expand the work that was completed as part of Phase 1 of this project.  Primarily, this Phase of the project will take place on Main Street between Meeting Hill Lane and Grove Street.  Work is scheduled to begin on July 8th, and it is anticipated that this phase of the project will take approximately 4 weeks to complete.
