2019 Water and Sewer Upgrades

Water and Sewer Upgrades

September 2019

Construction of water and sewer improvements along Kenoza Street, Lawrence Street and several side streets between Main Street and Lawrence Street will begin the week of September 3rd. Click here for a map showing the location of the work.

The project is being managed by the City of Haverhill Water and Wastewater Divisions. N. Granese & Sons, Inc. will be performing the construction. The project will result in better water and sewer service for homes and businesses within the project area and throughout Haverhill.

Information about the work – including timelines, possible water and sewer disruptions, and the placement of temporary water bypass lines – is being shared with impacted residents via letters and community meetings.

The work will be completed in approximately 18 months and will be done in phases in such a way as to minimize any disruptions of water and sewer service. It will impact:

  • Kenoza Avenue from Humphrey Street to Lawrence Street
  • Lawrence Street from Kenoza Avenue to Hamilton Avenue
  • Marshland Street, Columbia Park, Elm Street, Howard Street, Ashford Street, Taft Avenue, Dudley Street, Davis Place, Forest Avenue, Warren Street, Lincoln Street, Columbia Terrace, and Columbia Place

Residents of impacted properties will receive notices in advance of any work that may impact the property. The notices will include names and contact information for Water and Sewer project managers.

The installation of above-ground, temporary water bypass lines is standard procedure whenever existing water mains are being replaced or serviced. Any water service interruption will be kept to a short time frame in order to minimize inconvenience to our customers.

The result of the work will be water mains that will support residential and commercial customers in that section of Haverhill for generations to come.
