TUESDAY, JANUARY 20, 2015 - WATER MAIN BREAK BEAVER DAM DRIVE.
Water service to several houses in the Beaver Dam Drive Drive area has been shut off in order to repair a water main break.
Water service to the affected houses is expected to be returned within 4-5 hours. We are working to fix the problem as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience while the repair is performed.
Once water service is restored you may experience some discoloration of the water. This discoloration should disappear after a few minutes of running your COLD water tap.
WINTER IS HERE..!
We need your help in keeping the fire hydrants free from snow (rule of thumb is at least 3 feet surrounding the hydrant should be cleared). With over 1,000 hydrants in town it takes us considerable time to get to them all after each major snow storm, and the more help we get from folks the quicker we can get them cleared and easily accessible in the event of an emergency. The last thing anyone wants is to have to search for a buried hydrant during an emergency.
Also—please remember that: In accordance with Massachusetts General Law Chapter 148 Section 27B it is unlawful to pile, push, or plow snow or ice on or against any fire hydrant in any public or private way. Please make sure not to shovel, plow, or blow snow onto the hydrants when clearing your property!
We really appreciate your help!
