***Important Information for those Residents affected by the Street Paving Projects***
Upon completion of the paving projects, the newly paved streets will not be permitted to be dug/opened for FIVE years (IF approved by the Engineering Department). Therefore, if there is any pending underground utility work to be performed it must be completed prior to completion of the paving project.
Examples of Underground Utility work are but not limited to:
- Sewer (chronic issues should be addressed at this time and should be brought to the attention of the Engineering Department 978.605.2358)
- Water (volume, pressure, and quality issues should be brought to the attention of the Water Department at this time 978.921.6057)
- Natural Gas: In the event you do not have natural gas service and are interested in changing to natural gas, we would suggest that you contact National Grid (1-800-233-5325) to schedule your service at this time. Please notify the Engineering Department if you need assistance you with expediting your request (978.605.2358).
- Sump Pump: If you have a sump pump it may be possible to connect to the City’s drainage infrastructure. Call the Engineering Department if you need assistance with this matter (978.605.2358).
The Engineering Department is available to assist you with any questions or concerns you have. We will also be updating this important project with information that can be found on this link as it becomes available.
