The Town of Eastham announced the start of the municipal water system project. Monday, July 13 will be the first day of phase one. Water main installation will begin on Monday on Alston Ave. at the intersection of Schoolhouse Road.
Water mains will be installed in the Alston Ave. area as well as Schoolhouse Road and Meetinghouse Road. This phase of the project is expected to last 6 to 8 weeks, according to a notice from the town. Police officers will be present to assist motorists through construction areas and detours.
Work will be done Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Hyannis-based Environmental Partners is the engineering firm chosen to work with the Town of Eastham. South Dennis-based CC Construction has been contracted to the work.
Eastham residents voted to establish a municipal water system at the 2014 annual town meeting. At the annual town meeting in May 2015, residents voted to establish a town-wide water system.
According to the town's dedicated water project website, the new system will include two well fields, a 126' storage tank with a 750,000 gallon capacity and 45-miles of pipes. Phase One of the project will provide water for one third of Eastham, according to the town. See the Concept Phasing Plan as of May 15, 2015 here.
