Park Center Road to be closed for water tank work Featured

Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) announced that Park Center Road (formally known as Judd Road), originally scheduled for September 28th-29th, will now be closed to traffic on Wednesday, October 4th and Thursday, October 5th.  This closure is necessary to dismantle and remove the crane that was used during the initial phase construction for our new water storage tank.  

“We again appreciate the residents’ understanding and cooperation in this matter,” said John Bilda, General Manager of NPU. “The tank outer wall and dome construction is complete so the crane can now be removed.  We don’t anticipate and further road closings for this project.” 

The new 2.5 million gallon water storage tank replaces the old tank built in 1971.  When completed, the tank will be 73 feet in diameter and 86 feet high, as compared to the old tank which was 140 feet in diameter and 52 feet tall.  NPU is replacing the water storage tank with a new and improved tank as part of its efforts to modernize Norwich’s water infrastructure.  The design of the new tank will result in improved water quality and lower maintenance costs.
