Indian Village Water Main Project
On June 20th, the Indian Village & Littlefield Road water main improvement was awarded to Onyx Corporation of Acton and Sanexen of Montreal, Canada. Impacted roads are Agawam, Quaboag, Seminole, Sioux, Mohegan and Littlefield (approximately 10,000-linear feet total). For the first time, the District will employ the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure utilizing a fully structural liner inside of existing pipes, Aqaupipe by Sanexen, that will renew the usable life to > 50-years. A pre-construction meeting was held with contractor, District and Town of Acton officials on June 20th , and it was decided that the project will begin after the 4th of July holiday. It will require that water service on impacted roads to be provided via temporary over-ground piping; this will be staged and placed into service prior to any work beginning on the existing pipes. This technology is minimally intrusive, and requires only the excavation of two “Pits” for launching and retrieval of the structural liner at either end of the buried pipe being lined, hence, traffic in the neighborhood will be minimally impacted compared to typical open-trench pipe renewal.
Forthcoming will be notification via hand delivery to all residents on impacted streets. The connection of temporary service to each house will require coordination with all homeowners for access; contractor and Water District personnel will coordinate to achieve this. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make these necessary improvements to our distribution system to maintain a high level of water service to our customers.
