Weeping Willow Estates Blasting Notifications

Posted on: August 29, 2023

[ARCHIVED] Blasting Permit to be Issued This Week

The blasting permit application to begin blasting on the Weeping Willow Estates site has been submitted and will be issued this week.

Mass Rock Services Inc. representatives will be on site the morning of Tuesday September 5, 2023 to begin the preparation process for a test blast. There is scheduled to be one blast on this date.

Notifications of the blasts will be sent out through the Town of Andover notification process that you may sign up for. Notifications will occur at least thirty minutes prior to the blast.

Blasts are also tentatively scheduled for Wednesday September, 5 through Friday September 8, 2023 as well.

Blast Warning Signal System
An audible warning signal made by an air whistle, air horn or other similar device shall sound before each shot is fired. All personnel working in or near the blast area shall be familiar with the warning signal system. Signs describing the warning signal system shall be posted at conspicuous locations at the job site, as approved by the department. The following audible warning signal system shall be used:

  1. One long signal—Preparing to blast, (clear the blast area).
  2. Two short signals—Ready to blast, (after the blaster checks that the blast area is clear).
  3. Three short signals—All clear, (after the blaster completes post-blast procedures).
