  • Project

  • Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt, Jr. is pleased to announce the construction of the City's new 16-inch water transmission main and 3 MGD booster water pump station is underway. The new 4.7-mile water transmission main and booster pump station is part of the City's Clean & Sustainable Water Future Plan and will provide a secondary water supply to the West Peabody High Service System. In addition, this will allow the City to upgrade the Winona Water Treatment Plant and to expand the West Peabody High Service System which currently services approximately 1/3 of the City.

    The construction of the new transmission main will take place from Lynn Street near the Robert J. Walsh Water Treatment Plant to Route 1 on the following streets:
    Lynn Street (at Brown Street)
    Brown Street
    Maple Street (Brown Street to Norfolk Avenue)
    Norfolk Avenue
    Lynnfield Street (Norfolk Avenue to Summit Street)
    Summit Street
    Route 128 (exit 26) Lowell Street off-ramp
    Lowell Street (Northshore Road to Peabody Road)
    Peabody Road
    Clark Road (Peabody Road to cul-de-sac)
    Interstate 95 on-ramp
    Route 1 (161-169 Newbury Street)

  • Finance & Funding (DW-SRF 4592)

  • The cost of the new water transmission main and pump station is $10.6 million which is being financed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's (Mass DEP) Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) with joint funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. DWSRF provide states and communities with the necessary resources to improve community health by maintaining and upgrading their water systems. You can learn more information about DWSRF from MassDEP's website and the EPA's website.

  • Project Management

  • The project is being managed by the Peabody Department of Public Services with an onsite representative from Weston & Sampson to assist in construction oversight. The work is expected to be completed in 6 months and will be done in phases in order to minimize any disruptions of water service. Residents and businesses of impacted properties will receive notices in advance of any work that will impact the property.

  • Contractors

  • The City has hired Albanese D&S, Inc. to construct the first portion of the transmission main from Lynn Street to the Route 128 Lowell Street off-ramp and Revoli Construction to construct the second portion of the transmission main from the Route 128 Lowell Street off-ramp to Route 1. In addition, the City has hired Dankris Builders Corporation for the construction of the City's new 3 MGD booster pump station along Lowell Street.

  • Construction

  • Be advised portions of the project will include the installation of temporary above-ground water bypass lines running along the side of the street. Notices will be provided to any resident or business that will be tied into these temporary waterlines. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this project may cause and assure you that we will be working to expedite this project. If for some reason an unanticipated shutdown occurs every effort will be made to reinstate water service within 4-hours. At any time, you experience dirty or discolored water, please run your cold water tap for approximately 10 minutes or until all discoloration has disappeared. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while work is conducted to improve your water system.
