Informational Meeting regarding Route 202A Water Main Extension Project to be held on 1/25

The Department of Public Works is notifying potential water customers of a public informational meeting regarding a major water project that will make municipal water available to the Rt. 202A corridor.

According to the Director of City Services, Peter C. Nourse, municipal water will be brought from Washington St. through the Highfield Common development, down Bickford Rd. and to Rt. 202A where it will head west along Rt. 202A, terminating in the Crown Point Rd. area. Residents on Bickford Rd., along Rt. 202A, in Winkley Farms, and on Fiddlehead Ln. will have the opportunity to tie into municipal water. Residents in the MTBE program in the Crown Point Rd. area will also be able to tie in.

Nourse says that residents may have already been approached by sub-contractors of the general contractor. “These sub-contractors may ask you questions regarding blasting and surveying or they may be staking out survey points,” said Nourse. “They include D and C Construction, K and S, Capital Rock, and Doucette Surveyors. They are all legitimate and part of this project. Blasting is anticipated as there is much ledge in the region.”

Nourse encourages area residents to attend an upcoming informational meeting and promises to provide an overview of the project and answer any questions.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 25 (7pm) in the Community Room, at the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center, 150 Wakefield Street. For additional information and inquiries, contact the Department of Public Works at (603) 332-4096.
