2017 Fire Hydrant Replacement Project -

Beginning Monday, August 7th, the City of Waltham has hired Gravity Construction Co. to begin the replacement of approx. 40 fire hydrants throughout the City.   The hydrant work is expected to continue during the month of August, or until August 26th, between the hours of 7am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.  Residents are encouraged to click on the attached city map to view the various locations around the city where the fire hydrants will be replaced.  Residents should not expect any interruption of water services in their area during the work, - unless for emergency purposes only.  Residents will be given advanced notification, in those locations where the street water main would require a pre-arranged shutdown to replace a hydrant.  Police officer details will also be available at each location to assist with traffic and public safety concerns.  The City welcomes residents with any questions regarding the work to please contact the City Engineering Department @ 781-314-3830.
