2018 Water Main Improvement Projects

OLDWATERMAIN

WE’VE COME A LONG WAY AND WE ARE STILL IMPROVING!

Here is the list of water main improvement projects for 2018

The City of Fitchburg D.P.W – Water Division will be upgrading the water mains on the following streets (in no particular order) in 2018:

  • Brigham Park, beginning just beyond Oak
  • Beacon Street, from Atlantic to Summer
  • Westminster Hill Road, from Castle to Bishop
  • Park Street, from Main Street to the end
  • Jerry Street, from Jackson to Hardy
  • Congress Place, from Congress Street to end of existing water main - Winch Street

This is a continuation of last year’s project which, when completed, will result in the upgrade/replacement of approximately 15,000 feet of water main.  It is expected that the Water Division will begin another project in 2019 with the goal of replacing/upgrading an additional 15,000 feet of water main.  The complete list of streets for the 2019 project has not yet been determined but will, of course, focus on upgrading water mains in those areas that experience bouts of discolored water (due to tuberculated water mains) and/or where improving pressure/flows would be beneficial to fire protection.
