Extra Curbstop/Line @ 38 Main St.

During the waterline repair at 38 Main Street an extra curbstop was located and removed by the town. It was later determined that the curbstop was installed for a Video Store that was located across the road. The property owner has asked the town to put it back for future use at no expense to him. General Agreement that the Town will replace the Curbstop we removed at no expense to the property owner when required.

 

Pigging/Flushing Lines

General Agreement to contact Jim Pollett and ask to have the new Line Flushing Plan developed as soon as possible.

Above Ground Water Connection (Added to Agenda)

A Noggin Cove Resident has requested permission to use an above ground waterline during the summer months to obtain water from our main waterline on Noggin Cove Road.
