UPDATE:  AUGUST 10, 2017

ALL CUSTOMERS AFFECTED HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED

To support the rehabilitation of the existing water pipe buried in the road per the prior notice of July 18th, this is to inform you that connections to the temporary, over ground pipe to maintain water service to your home will be made the week of August 14th (weather permitting):

AGAWAM ROAD   -           MONDAY 8/14/17 & TUESDAY 8/15/17

QUABOAG ROAD  -           MONDAY 8/14/17 & TUESDAY 8/15/17

SIOUX ROAD          -           MONDAY 8/14/17 & TUESDAY 8/15/17

MOHEGAN ROAD -           MONDAY 8/14/17 & TUESDAY 8/15/17 & WEDNESDAY 8/16/17

SEMINOLE ROAD -           TUESDAY 8/15/17 & WEDNESDAY 8/16/17

The connection of the temporary service will be to an outdoor hose connection, and does require that personnel enter the residence to shut the main supply to the street to effectively isolate the pipe under construction in the Right-of-Way.

If you have questions/comments/concerns, or require special conditions to make this connection, please contact:

            Brad Price- Onyx Corporation @ 978-265-9922, or bprice@onyxcorporation.net

            Sean Fournier- Onyx Corporation @ 978-502-6525, or sean@onyxcorporation.net

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete this very important improvement to our water distribution system.

Respectfully,

Indian Village Water Main Project

On June 20th, the Indian Village & Littlefield Road water main improvement was awarded to Onyx Corporation of Acton and Sanexen of Montreal, Canada.  Impacted roads are Agawam, Quaboag, Seminole, Sioux, Mohegan and Littlefield (approximately 10,000-linear feet total).  For the first time, the District will employ the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure utilizing a fully structural liner inside of existing pipes, Aqaupipe by Sanexen, that will renew the usable life to > 50-years.  A pre-construction meeting was held with contractor, District and Town of Acton officials on June 20th , and it was decided that the project will begin after the 4th of July holiday.  It will require that water service on impacted roads to be provided via temporary over-ground piping; this will be staged and placed into service prior to any work beginning on the existing pipes.  This technology is minimally intrusive, and requires only the excavation of two “Pits” for launching and retrieval of the structural liner at either end of the buried pipe being lined, hence, traffic in the neighborhood will be minimally impacted compared to typical open-trench pipe renewal.

Forthcoming will be notification via hand delivery to all residents on impacted streets.  The connection of temporary service to each house will require coordination with all homeowners for access; contractor and Water District personnel will coordinate to achieve this.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make these necessary improvements to our distribution system to maintain a high level of water service to our customers.

Please contact us via email at chris@actonwater.com, by phone at 978-263-9107 or in person at 693 Massachusetts Ave during normal operating hours Mon-Fri 7:30 am – 4:00 pm should you have any questions, or need any additional information.

Thank you from the Board of Water Commissioners and District staff.
