Contracts 3, 4, and 8 – Curb stop installations are continuing in three different areas of Town next week: 1. at the neighborhoods adjacent to Brackett Road (Thoreau Drive, Seashell Lane); 2. at Bridge Road (near Samoset Road) and along Samoset Road; and 3. along Nuaset Road Rear (Aunt Millie’s Way). Please anticipate delays and possible detours in these areas.
Throughout the work zones roads may be temporarily closed during work hours except for one lane alternating traffic for local resident access and buses. Other traffic will be detoured where possible to avoid delays and increase construction site and public safety. Normal construction hours are 7am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
WATER IS HERE! – How to Connect to the Eastham Water System
Over 175 connections to customers are now complete to the new municipal water system serving about 1,700 people daily including the schools. Once a curb stop or service valve has been installed in front of your property, you will be able to submit a water application if you would like to connect to the water system. The list of approved plumbers and contractors at the following path have been informed of the Town’s standards for water connections http://easthamwaterproject.weebly.com/approved-contractor-list.html . We recommend coordinating the application process with the plumber or contractor you select to perform your connection. The link to the water application can be found on the water system’s homepage, at the top tabs of http://easthamwaterproject.weebly.com/ .
