Water Shut-off & Construction Notifications

All Marked Tree Road residents are now connected to the temporary by-pass water main. Residents are asked to report ANY ISSUES with the temporary water by-pass to Revoli Inc. The contractor can be reached 24/7 at (978) 815-7825. 

When the temperature has the chance to get to freezing or below, it is advised that you slightly open a faucet inside your home. This will keep a constant flow of water to the pipe coming into your home. This will keep the water from freezing in the bypass pipe. It is a common industry practice when using a water main bypass this time of year.

If you don't keep the water circulating in the bypass pipe during freezing temperatures, it will eventually FREEZE 

If you have any additional questions or would like more information about this project, please feel free to stop by the Engineering Division at DPW. Residents may also call the Engineering Division at 
(781) 455-7550 and ask for David Kelly, Steve Nadeau or Tom Ryder.
