Planned Water Outage, Friday Nov 22nd Peakham Road

Planned Water Outage: Friday, November 22nd, 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM, Peakham Road (between the intersections of Forest Street thru to Mark Tree Road)

On Friday, November 22nd during the hours of 8:30-3:00 pm (approx.) water service on Peakham Road between the intersections of Forest Street thru to Marked Tree Road will be temporarily suspended. This interruption will allow for connection to the newly installed water main on Horse Pond Road.  Outage duration is a best-estimate based on water infrastructure events it is not an exact time. Impacted residents should make arrangements to be without water during this period.

The construction zone area (the intersections of Horse Pond Road, Peakham Road and Pratts Mill Road) will be closed to all thru traffic, with the exception of local resident-traffic, school buses and emergency vehicles. Exception vehicles should plan for some degree of delay to allow construction equipment to be safely moved outside of the travel lane.

Police details will be on-site to facilitate vehicle detours and pedestrian traffic.

Kindly Note: local traffic passes are intended for use by those directly impacted by the construction zone area. If your home is outside of the construction zone area even if you have been provided with a green-traffic pass, during this phase of the project, you must follow the detour signs. You will not be permitted through the area of construction.

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work hard to restore water service to this area as quickly as possible.

What to expect once water is restored? Those in close proximity to this area of town may experience fluctuating pressure (air in pipes) or discolored water (mineral sediment lifting from the bottom of the pipes and traveling with the water-flow inside the main.) Once water is restored running a cold tap briefly will assist in clearing your service line of air and minerals.

Is the water safe to drink? Slight discoloration may sometimes linger for a few hours, it is not harmful to your health and only temporarily affects the appearance of the water, it does not influence water quality. Water conditions typically improve overnight.
