Multiple streets in Watertown will be impacted by exploratory boring beginning April 22.
“Disturbances to residents are anticipated to be minor, but residents may notice elevated short-term noise levels and equipment working,” according to the DPW announcement.
Two-inch bores will be taken to test soil. Each bore takes between 1-3 hours to complete. The holes will be backfilled, and the surface will be restored, according to the DPW.
Anyone with questions or concerns can call Weston & Sampson at 978-532-1900 ext. 2435, or the Department of Public Works at 617-972-6420 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
