Water Tower Notice: Out of Service

August 22, 2017


The Town’s elevated water tower will be drained and taken out of service for a second round of maintenance beginning today (Tuesday, August 22nd) to allow for planned maintenance and repair activities to be carried out in the coming days.

During this timeframe, the Town’s water system will be fed by direct pumping from the Water Treatment Plant (WTP) at 43 Abbott Street. Over the week, customers may experience some fluctuations in water pressure and may also experience some discoloration of water at times.   Please note that during a power outage there is a delay of approximately 2 to 3 minutes while a power transfer occurs from line hydro power to back-up generator and re-starts the pumps. Further information on this activity may be found in the attached document link.
