WILMINGTON, MA — Starting Monday, July 9, 2018, the Department of Public Works will begin installing approximately 800’ of new 12-inch cement lined ductile iron water main in Woburn Street, starting at Kajin Way and ending in front of #190 Woburn Street. The new water main will replace an existing 10” cast iron water main that was built in the 1950s. This upgrade will also include replacing a fire hydrant in the area.
Residents located on Woburn Street, between Kajin Way and the east side of the I-93 overpass bridge (190 Woburn St.) will be without water from 10:00am – 2:00pm on Monday, July 9, 2018.
While the excavating will not begin until Monday, July 9, please be aware that there will be some preparation work (saw cutting the road, setting up pipe etc.) completed during the week of July 2 – July 6.
The project is anticipated to be completed in approximately 4-5 weeks. Working days are Monday – Friday, starting at approximately 8:00 AM and ending by 3:00 PM.
During this project, area residents may temporarily experience discolored water and/or low water pressure. They will be notified by Water Division personnel if their water service will be temporarily interrupted. The DPW will try to limit disrupting traffic as much as possible. Please refrain from parking vehicles on the road during construction.
Please feel free to talk to the crew directly or call the Department of Public Works if you have any special circumstances and we will try to accommodate you if possible.
Although unlikely, please be aware that your water service could be unexpectedly disrupted. DPW suggests keeping a gallon of water in the refrigerator during this project in case problems were to occur.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the DPW at (978) 658-4711.
