With the drought conditions intensifying, we are asking all water customers to continue to use water wisely and to suspend all non-essential outdoor water use, such as lawn irrigation, with the exception of hand watering vegetable gardens and newly planted vegetation. The New Hampshire Drought Management Team and New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services are urging the public to conserve and is advising against lawn watering. There are also things residents can do indoors to minimize water use – such as replacing old fixtures with EPA WaterSense labeled products, turning off faucets while washing dishes and hands, only washing full loads of laundry, and taking shorter showers. We thank you for your help in conserving our community's water resources. #ConcordNH

We are participating in The Value of Water Coalition's, “Imagine A Day Without Water” campaign to promote the importance of drinking water. We encourage everyone to participate in the campaign on Thursday by counting how many times you come in contact with tap #water during the day to see how important it really is to daily life. This includes each time you wash your hands, brush your teeth, wash dishes, and even flush a toilet (it can really add up throughout the day)! Share your number with us by commenting on this post or post to our page using #ValueWater. #ImagineADayWithoutWater

Share this post to encourage others to participate too!

We encourage #ConcordNH #water consumers to conserve water consumption as #drought conditions continue to develop in New Hampshire. Our water supply is sufficient to meet current demands and an emergency supply is available if necessary, but water consumers should still use water wisely during this period. Even with some recent rain, the state is experiencing severe conditions. Visit www.concordnh.gov/conservation for water conservation tips that can help reduce water consumption or www.concordnh.gov/irrigation for proper irrigation techniques.

We appreciate all efforts to continue to use water wisely to preserve our community’s water resource. Visit NHDES's website for statewide drought updates at http://des.nh.gov. #WhenInDrought

Last week, our sewer crew completed an installation of a new drain manhole on the intersection of Pembroke Road and Canterbury Road. A recent sinkhole in this area led crews to discover a drainage system failure that required immediate attention. Crews tied in the new drain to a 30" main drain line and also installed a new catch basin to tie into the new manhole drain. This project was done to repair and upgrade the existing drainage system for more efficient water flow and will also increase road safety in the area by preventing any potential future road collapse. #ConcordNH

#UNH’s T2 (Technology Transfer) Center has awarded our Highway and Utilities Superintendent, Jim Major, as a Safety Champion in their Roads Scholar Program. The Roads Scholar Program offers educational training for public works professionals and a Safety Champion is a side award given once a recipient achieves 20 safety hours, regardless of their level in the program (which currently is as a Senior Roads Scholar). Concord General Services’ Road Crew Supervisor, Chad Jaquith, also has achieved a new status in the program as a Senior Roads Scholar. Currently, there are an additional 9 active employees from Concord General Services that are Roads Scholars: Larry Anthony (Roads Scholar I), Marc Moore (Roads Scholar I), Kevin Rowell (Roads Scholar I), Glenn Vallee (Roads Scholar I), Brian Deschenes (Roads Scholar II), Dennis Gilmore (Roads Scholar II), Jan Hall (Senior Roads Scholar), Nat Jones (Master Roads Scholar), and Kevin Demers (Master Roads Scholar and Safety Champion). These individuals are dedicated to improve their work performance and professional development through continued training that aids in increased street maintenance for the City of Concord. #ConcordNH

Our Public Properties Division has started the renovation of the pool at Kimball Park! This renovation will similarly reflect the renovation we recently completed at Guyette Pool at Rolfe Park, which will include full ADA accessibility “zero-entry” access to the pool, improved deck floor traction, exciting new gusher jet features, a beach style ramp, and increased deck drainage to reduce slips, trips, and falls. The existing pool structure will be fully replaced and the facility will be upgraded with new lavatory fixtures, signs, and a fresh coat of paint. Energy efficiency will also be improved with new lighting and water filtration media.

Most of the construction will be finished for the season by early October with final touches completed in the spring for the new pool to be ready in time for the next pool season. #ConcordNH

The City of Concord's Ed Young water storage tank has recently received a thorough inspection of the exterior walls and dome. An exterior cleaning, minimal concrete repair, and repainting were completed as part of regular proactive maintenance of the City's water system.

Here is a before and after of our tank maintenance. #TransformationTuesday #ConcordNH
