Water service may be interrupted Saturday on Nash St.

From the Town of Hillsborough:
Residents in about 15 houses on Nash Street may see their water service interrupted Saturday, Feb. 19, while utility work takes place for the Nash Street Sidewalk Project.

The town’s contractor, S.T. Wooten Corp., will confirm the schedule of the expected work by Thursday morning. If the work takes place Saturday, the contractor will hand deliver notices to the affected houses by this Thursday.

The work to complete water service tie-ins would be performed on Nash Street between Queen and Corbin streets, with a tentative schedule of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The contractor has recommended performing the work Saturday to prevent interruption of water service at Hillsborough Elementary School on a weekday. The affected houses are connected to the same water main as the school.

While the work will be performed by the contractor, Hillsborough utility staff will disconnect and connect the water at the main. Town staff also will take water samples and test for water quality. If residents in the project area have questions or concerns about their water after service is restored, please contact the Hillsborough Water Plant at 732-3621.

A similar interruption in water service is expected within the next few weeks. This second utility work would affect about 12 properties on Nash Street between Corbin Street and Revere Road.

The town apologizes for any inconvenience and appreciates residents’ cooperation.

The Nash Street Sidewalk Project length is about 3 miles and includes construction of sidewalk along Nash Street, Revere and Faucette Mill roads and Allison, Calvin, Hayes and Union streets. It is intended to improve safety for walkers and to serve as a north-south link, connecting neighborhoods, businesses and schools as well as Gold Park and Riverwalk in the future.

For more information, contact Assistant Town Manager Nicole Ard by e-mail or phone at 732-1270 Ext. 77 or Public Works Supervisor Ken Hines by e-mail or phone at 732-1270 Ext. 78.
