It's Infrastructure Week (May 15-19, 2017)!

Infrastructure is vital to providing communities with basic resources, such as water, sewer, roads, bridges, railways, airports, energy, and broadband. Infrastructure is the foundation of public safety, jobs, quality of life, and even national security – yet, the nation’s infrastructure is in need of improved maintenance and system upgrades to meet existing needs and growing demand. Although Concord remains on the path as a leading community in New Hampshire to invest in infrastructure, The American Society of Civil Engineers's 2017 Infrastructure Report Card graded America's infrastructure with a D+. It's #TimeToBuild better infrastructure for our country. Join us in celebrating Infrastructure Week (hosted by the Infrastructure Week organization) by remembering the importance of infrastructure and advocating for infrastructure investment.

This is an annual event hosted by American Water Works Association to promote the importance of drinking water. We encourage everyone to celebrate National Drinking Water Week by getting to know more about their tap water. From source to tap, we work to ensure the Concord community is receiving the best quality of water at all times.

Spring Leaf Collection is in full swing! Everyone is doing a great job getting their leaves to the curb in biodegradable yard waste bags! Leaves can also be placed in rigid containers (such as trash barrels) if they are labeled for leaf collection. Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can place an unlimited amount of leaves and grass clippings to the curb by 7:00am on their trash collection day now through June 3, 2017. Leaves must be in biodegradable yard waste bags or in a labeled rigid container. Unacceptable items, including plastic bags, will not be accepted. Leaves are collected by Casella in a separate collection truck and are taken to Earth Materials Recycling Center to be created into compost. We thank residents for participating in this program to recycle their leaves for the community's beneficial reuse. Find more information about Spring Leaf Collection at www.concordnh.gov/leafcollection. #ConcordNH

Concord's road load limits are officially lifted as of Monday, April 24, 2017. All snow had to be completely melted and all ditches had to be dried up of any standing water before postings could be lifted. Road damage can naturally occur during frequent thawing and freezing cycles, and heavy weight on weakened roads can cause excess damage. These postings were put in place to help protect Concord's streets during the spring thaw. Our sign crew started making their way through the city yesterday to remove all load limit signs. We appreciate all the cooperation to help maintain Concord's roads during the spring thaw. #ConcordNH

Our crews started flushing hydrants today to clear sediment from water distribution pipes. Although Concord is still in a moderate drought and water conservation practices are still strongly encouraged, hydrant flushing is part of required routine maintenance to clean Concord’s drinking water system. For the next several weeks, crews will be flushing hydrants in scheduled areas throughout the city to improve water quality and check water pressure. Customers may experience low pressure and discoloration when flushing is occurring in their area. If discoloration occurs, run your tap water on cold until the water runs clear. Residents should avoid doing laundry during their scheduled flushing time.

A hydrant flushing schedule will be posted online each week to indicate upcoming impacted areas. View flushing schedules and find more information at www.concordnh.gov/springoperations. #ConcordNH

Did you hear the good news from the National Drought Mitigation Center last week? It appears that Concord's drought conditions have finally slightly improved - changing from "severe" conditions to "moderate" conditions. Groundwater resources are still much lower than average and there is still a long way to go, but recent precipitation has helped reduce intensity levels. We ask the community to keep doing their part to conserve water to help restore resources. #DoYourPart #ConcordNH #drought
