WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
- HIGH STREET BETWEEN ALLEN AND STARK STREETS -
As part of Concord’s 2017 Water Main Replacement Program that began in the summer of 2017, the water main and services on a portion of your street will be replaced this spring. The process will involve the installation of temporary water piping, street closures, lowering catch basins, manholes, removing curbing, and installing new water main and services. We are scheduled to begin the work in early April.
As a reminder any features such as, but not limited to, invisible dog fences, landscaping, or irrigation systems that lie within the right-of way need to be removed by the resident prior to the start construction. If the feature is not removed and the contractor damages them, neither the contractor nor the city will not be responsible for repairs or replacement.
During the construction, portions of the street may be closed and on-street parking will be prohibited between 7am and 5pm. Provisions will be made for residents who are directly affected by the construction and need to come and go from their homes and driveways.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this work may cause. There will be some minor vibrations caused by the equipment used to complete this work, so as a precaution, we suggest that valuables be taken from walls or shelves to prevent any damage. You can replace them when pavement is completed. The city also contracts with an independent materials testing firm to monitor vibrations during the construction. Your patience and cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
If you have tenants that reside on your property, please forward this notice to them.
Please feel free to contact Martha Drukker, Associate Engineer or Scott Sykes, Engineering Technician II at (603) 225-8520 with any questions or comments.
