Camp Street water main project to begin in Hyannis this month

Town plans two Q&As for residents this week

The Town of Barnstable is set to begin an extensive water main rehabilitation project this month in Hyannis. According to a release from the town, a cleaning and cement mortar lining process will begin on Camp Street. In addition to the cleaning process, valves, hydrants and water services up to property lines will be replaced along the way.

The project will begin on Camp Street and Mary Dunn Way and will eventually work its way across the Barnstable Municipal Airport and along Mary Dunn Road to the water storage tanks near Route 6. A temporary water bypass system will be installed during the project to maintain the flow of water.

Water work will begin in the fall and paving and completion of the project is slated for the spring of 2015.

During the project, Camp Street will be closed to through traffic, allowing only for local access. According to the Town of Barnstable, there may be period of water service interruption. Residents will be given 48 hours notice prior to anticipated disruptions.

The town has scheduled two Q&As for residents in the parking lot at 140 Yarmouth Road on Tuesday, September 2 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, September 6 at 11 a.m. for questions, comments and concerns.
