Errol is a small town in northern New Hampshire with a total population of less than 400. Horizons Engineering began working with the community in 2013 when they learned that their water system had deficiencies and violations. In 2019, we completed the final construction project of a $2.12 million dollar water system improvement project. Horizons Engineering assisted the community with the design and permitting for a new well, new pump station, 35,000 gallon atmospheric storage tank and 8500 linear feet of distribution main improvements.
We have also provided construction services to oversee the construction and provide administrative support during the construction. In addition to this engineering design work, Horizons assisted the Town with obtaining funding from USDA Rural Development Water and Environmental program, Community Development Block Grant and the NH Drinking Water Trust Fund. Of the $2.12 million project, $1.72 million was in the form of grants with the Town only needing to contribute 20% for the repayment of a $400,000 loan. The entire watermain replacement project was within the NHDOT Right of Way.
