Water Department

NH ID#2531010-Rick Meleski

Winchester has three sources for town water. Wells #1 and #2 located at 433 Keene Road and well #3 located on pump road 2 off from Plumb Pak Drive. None of these location were impacted by the recent flooding. These are gravel packed wells over 50 feet deep. We have already passed our three monthly absent/present samples on the distribution system for the month of July. As part of our corrosion control program on file with DES the addition of a disinfected product ( sodium hypochlorite ) is added at each well site to prevent any type of microbiological contamination. We strive to see residuals in the range of .05 mg/l of free chlorine in Ashuelot and end of Warwick Road without creating customer complaints within the center of Winchester.  The Winchester water department is delivering safe drinking water to all of its customers per state and federal standards.
