Eastham’s Municipal Water Project on Schedule

EASTHAM – The Town of Eastham’s municipal water project has been underway for roughly a year now. And while progress has been made, a great deal of work remains to be done.

Project officials recently reported to selectmen that they have wrapped up the first phase of the complex effort and are now at work on the next stage.

“As of now, one of final things we have to do is connect those Eastham parcels that are currently being served by Orleans, connect them to the new water system.” said Ryan Trahan, an engineer on the project at a recent meeting with the town’s selectmen.

With the completion of Phase One, nearly one third of Eastham residents now have access to the system. Phase Two will involve water mains, connecting hydrants, and curb stop work.

“We also hope to oversee the final paving of the Orleans loop along Bridge Road and working with the DPW we ended up extending the pavement of bridge road as well, all the way up to the boat meadow bridge,” said Trahan, “so we actually capitalized on the paving contractor being mobilized.”

Work has been going on along Bridge Road and Samoset Road since late last month and is expected to be completed shortly.

Consultants with Environmental Partners Group report that as of last month more than 600 homes and nearly 200 commercial properties have been connected to the new system.
