The Town will shut down the standpipe (water tower) on May 18 and it will remain offline until late October or early November. The rehabilitation of the standpipe, at 38 Commerce Road, is a 2022 capital project and was preceded by a test shutdown in February to check water pressure, with no complaints received.

The work will involve replacement of the protective lining and coating systems, safety upgrades for operators, and the installation of a hydrodynamic mixing system. This work will allow the standpipe to supply water at a controlled pressure and fire flow to a significant number of homes and businesses within the downtown area for years to come.
