The Whitinsville Water Company is continually improving it’s water system infrastructure and is very proud of its accomplishments. In 2016, the company replaced old undersized water mains on Border, A, B, C, and D Streets with new larger water mains to improve fire flows and water quality. In 2017, the company installed a new redundant water main on Church Street to improve flows into the eastern end of town. In 2018, the company replaced old undersized water mains on East, Willow, Johnston, Brook, and Briggs Streets to improve fire flows and water quality. In 2019, the company plans to replace old undersized water mains on Linden and Pine Streets to improve fire flows and water quality. The company will also be installing a new water main on the upper end of Prospect Street (from 57 Prospect up to the cul-de-sac). The company continually and cost effectively invests in its infrastructure to ensure that we have the best possible water system to provide the highest level of service possible while still maintaining affordable rates.
The 2019 water main project is still in the design phases and we anticipate that construction will start this summer and be completed in the fall. The Town of Northbridge requires that all trenches be left with temporary pavement over the winter (to allow settlement) and final paving to be done in the spring. So this spring we will be installing the final pavement for our 2018 project (East, Willow, Johnston, Brook, and Briggs Streets). And once the water main work on Linden, Pine, and Prospect Streets is complete this fall, we will have temporary pavement until spring of 2020. At that time final pavement will be installed. As we have more firm dates for the 2019 project, we will update this web page.
