Merrimack lifts water conservation request

MERRIMACK – The Merrimack Public Works Department announced Friday it has lifted the water conservation request from last week.

Officials offered their gratitude to residents in a brief release, saying the water levels in the tanks and the pressure in the lines remained within the normal range thanks in part to the conservation efforts.

“This allowed the work under the water line to be completed much sooner than expected. You may now resume your normal water usage,” the department wrote. “The next step will be completing the project, paving and getting Amherst Road open to traffic once again.”

Last week, the town encouraged all Merrimack Village District water customers to limit use over a 7-10 day period as crews worked to repair a section of roadway between Turkey Hill Road and Executive Park Drive that closed June 22 when a sinkhole formed because of the failure of a culvert.
