Cleghorn Ln/Hood Rd/Trull Brook Ln/Guile Ave Water Main Replacement Project
This project involves upgrades to the water distribution system piping on Cleghorn Lane, Hood Road, Trull Brook Lane, and Guile Avenue. The Contractor for this work is C.J.P. and Sons Construction Co., Inc. of Millis, MA. The upgrades include replacing the existing 6” transite and cast iron water main with new 8” polyvinyl chloride (PVC) water main. This new water main will provide greater flow capacity due to its larger pipe diameter. The new pipe will also have greater structural stability due to the piping material type (PVC) which is less prone to water main breaks. Water service connections between the new 8” PVC water main and the curb stop (valve typically located at the property line of each house) will also be replaced with new HDPE tubing (1” diameter in most locations). Existing fire hydrants and hydrant piping will be replaced with new hydrants. Additionally, several new fire hydrants will be installed throughout the project area in locations where there are no existing fire hydrants. The increased size of the water main along with the new fire hydrants will allow for greater fire protection capabilities throughout these neighborhoods.
Temporary Bypass Water Main is planned for use in some locations during this project where necessary. There will be some water service interruptions that are necessary during this construction project. Notices will be distributed to affected households at least 48 hours in advance of the anticipated shutdowns.
Residents that have irrigation systems and/or electric dog fences located within the right-of-way are advised to mark out their location as soon as possible to prevent these systems from being damaged by excavation. Please note that the Town is not responsible for any damages to these components installed within the Town’s right-of-way but we will make every effort to avoid damaging them if we are made aware of their presence in advance.
