Water system flushing and chlorination to begin in Chatham March 1st

The Chatham Water Department will begin its annual water system flushing program on March 1, 2010, weather permitting.   The flushing of the distribution system will continue through the end of May.  During this time the Water Department will be adding a small amount of chlorine as a precautionary measure.  Signs will be posted along the side of the roads in the areas where the flushing is being performed.

You may experience some discolored water during the flushing process and the water should clear after running the water for a short time. 

If the problem persists, please feel free to call the Water Department at (508) 945-5150.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.  The Water Department and Weston & Sampson operations staff thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this important maintenance process.

The work will be done over a six-day period from Monday, February 22, through Thursday, March 4, and will average about one day of construction per location. Work hours for this project will be from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Construction work will occur first in the parking lots on Ryder and School Streets. Once the work in these locations is completed, street construction work will occur in the following order: Webster Place, Masonic Place, Winthrop Street, Alden Street, and Daggett Lane.

Sandy Neck bathhouse meeting to be held February 24th

The Town of Barnstable Sandy Neck Program will be hosting an informational meeting on Wednesday, February 24th at 5 pm at the West Barnstable Community Building on Route 149 in West Barnstable.

We are in the preliminary stages and looking for feedback from the community as we move forward in the process. The meeting will give us an opportunity to present our plans to raze and rebuild the bathhouse in its existing location and to construct a new garage and sidewalks. This project will be financed entirely from fees paid by the users of Sandy Neck.

For more information, contact Nina Z. Coleman, Sandy Neck Park Manager at 508-790-6272.
