Due to a main break on 10/17/19 in the Tinker Rd area, customers in some parts of Northwest Nashua and Amherst system may experience intermittent periods of colored water. Repairs on the main are complete, and our crews are working over the next few days to clear the colored water from the system. Customers experiencing colored water are encouraged to contact Customer Service at 800-553-5191 to report the occurrence.  Information provided by our customers is helpful as we respond to alleviate the colored water.  To minimize the potential for colored water as construction work continues over the next several weeks, Pennichuck crews will be performing flushing activities as necessary. This message will be updated accordingly if additional flushing is necessary.   Please click here for a map of the area affected.

Roof Leader Disconnection Program

During 2013, Pennichuck Water Works (Pennichuck) worked with Comprehensive Environmental Inc. (CEI) to assess the benefits of implementing a residential roof leader disconnection program in the Pennichuck Brook Watershed, specifically focusing on the more urban communities of Nashua, Amherst, and Merrimack. The project quantified potential recharge volumes, potential disconnected impervious area, and potential water quality benefits that could be achieved in each community, within the boundaries of the watershed, through implementation of a roof leader disconnection program. The project also outlined existing available outreach tools that communities could provide to residents to help promote such a program. The results of the study were presented to the communities of Nashua, Amherst, and Merrimack as part of a Community Outreach Program.
