Ashuelot Court Utilities Replacement Project

The City of Keene, Public Works Department will be replacing the water and sewer mains on Ashuelot Court.  The water main replacement includes service laterals up to individual home water meters. The sewer replacement also includes replacement of laterals up to the property line. Because the project will remove and replace the water and sewer pipes serving individual properties, there will also be some temporary, short-term water and sewer service interruptions. The City will provide a temporary water connection to minimize inconvenience to the residents.  Affected properties will receive a notice 3 days in advance via door placard of any planned disruption. The construction contractor is allowed to disrupt services for a maximum of 6 hours, but interruptions will typically be much shorter.

Our contractor for this project will be Frank Lucius Construction.  You may see their staff and equipment preparing the site.  Construction is scheduled to begin on September 15, 2021, and will last for about one month.  During that time, you may encounter some minor disruption to vehicle and pedestrian traffic in the vicinity of the work. Please be patient with us as we complete these important improvements to our utility network.  Although the work area will be properly marked and barricaded, drivers and pedestrians should use extra caution when they are near open excavations or construction equipment.

In some circumstances, City staff and our contractor may need to access your home (for example, if you do not have an outdoor faucet).  If this occurs, we will contact you directly to arrange a time that is convenient for you. Under no circumstance will our contractor enter your home without a representative of the City present.  City staff will always identify themselves with a City-issued photo ID badge.
