Construction/Projects Update

Kessler Farm Water Storage Tank Project:

Construction of the new Kessler Farm Water Storage Tank at 69 Kessler Farm Drive in Nashua is underway. During construction, changes will be made in the day to day operation of the water system that supplies customers in the Northwest quadrant of Nashua so that pressures can be maintained throughout the Northwest water system. The Northwest water system extends from Manchester Street westerly to Rt 122 in Amherst and north of the Henri A Burque Highway; it is primarily Amherst Street with all connecting streets from the F.E. Everett Highway west to Rt 122 in Amherst. The scope of the Northwest water system also includes Pennichuck customers throughout the Bon Terrain system of Amherst. Customers may notice some variation in their water pressure for the duration of the construction, however it should not result in aesthetic changes to the water. Work hours during demolition and construction of the tank will generally be from 7:00 am until 5:00 pm. All work is being coordinated with the Nashua Fire Department, local officials, and the immediate community affected by the construction.

The existing Kessler Farm Water Storage Tank is a 4.5 million-gallon, 120 foot, diameter steel tank that was constructed in 1987. The steel tank will be replaced by a 5 million-gallon, 120 ft diameter, prestressed concrete tank. While the steel tank was serviceable and could have been taken off-line and repainted, such an undertaking is expensive and must be performed every 10 to 15 years. Concrete tanks require far less maintenance and ultimately an economic analysis indicated that replacement of the tank was the most cost-effective, long-term solution for our water storage needs

KEY DATES (APPROX): JUNE 21ST TO JULY 23RD: CONCRETE TANK WALL AND DOME PANEL FORMING & POURING AND OTHER MISC. CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES.

PWW PROJECT REPRESENTATIVES RECENTLY ATTENTED THE MAY 18TH BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING FOR THE KESSLER FARM ASSOCIATION TO GIVE AN UPDATE AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE PRESENT AT MEETINGS TO SUPPORT THE RESIDENTS/CUSTOMERS THROUGHOUT THE CONSTRUCTION.

If you have questions or concerns about the work effort to replace the Kessler Farm Water Storage Tank please contact the Distribution Engineering Manager, Pete Tedder, at (800)553-5191 ext. 2324 or the Project Engineer, Ryan Houle at (800)553-5191 ext.2367.

Coburn Woods Water Main Replacements:

Coburn Woods water main replacements have begun. The Coburn Woods water distribution system was a private water system that was built in the 1970s. Due to poor construction, the water system suffered from chronic water main breaks and profuse water leakage. The entire complex was metered through one meter until Pennichuck took over the system in 2006. In order to stem the ongoing water leakage problem Pennichuck is undertaking replacement of all the water mains under 6 inches in size. The new mains will be installed with upgraded materials approved for use by Pennichuck Water Works and will be installed with regard for state sanitary separation requirements.

See map here for scope of work for week beginning July 6, 2021.

If you have questions or concerns about the work effort to replace the water mains in Coburn Woods, please contact the Distribution Engineering Manager, Pete Tedder, at (800)553-5191 ext. 2324 or the Project Engineer, Ryan Houle at (800)553-5191 ext.2367.
