Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) Public Notice



October 5, 2015


A "batch" of mosquitoes collected in Candia by Dragon Mosquito Control on September 29th and sent to the state lab has tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).


This late in the season with evening temperatures below 50 degrees public spraying will not be done due to the short term effectiveness of the treatment.


Local residents are advised to take extra precautions when being outside during the evening hours (dusk till dawn). Clothing with long sleeves and long pants with socks and shoes are recommended.  Mosquito repellants should also be used during these peak hours.


The mosquito population has diminished significantly due to the colder temperatures and the single frost that we experienced.  Another heavy frost should bring this year’s mosquito population to a close for the season.


If you have any questions please call the Health Department at 603-483-1015.


Thank you,
David R. Murray
Health Officer
Town of Candia

The public is invited to attend the meeting and participate in the discussions.

Books for sale: "Candia: A Sense of Place"

The Heritage Commission has compiled and published an updated history of the town with an emphasis on residents' personal recollections. The last recorded history was done by the Bicentennial Committee in 1963. The new book begins with the history as it was documented in 1963.


Contributors to the 2014 "Candia: A Sense of Place", were town organizations updating their activities, many Candia residents’ memoirs and Moore School student appreciations of the town. New and old photographs enhance the book.


Copies are available at the Smyth Public Library or Commission members for $15.


Road Safety Audit - Intersection of Rt 43 and Rt 27

The NH Department of Transportation has now completed the Road Safety Audit (RSA) for two of the more dangerous intersections in Candia. These are two of the three corners of the triangle where NH Routes 27 & 43 traffic intersects.


One of those three corner intersections is the “Four Corners” where the state has installed traffic control signal lights, significantly improving the traffic flow and reducing accidents. 


The southerly corner intersection, where NH Route 43 traffic between Manchester and the Deerfield area meets Raymond Road, by the entrance to Holbrook Cemetery, is particularly dangerous. Traffic coming from the Deerfield area has to stop and then merge into the traffic coming from the Raymond area going into Manchester. Traffic coming from the Manchester area and going to the Deerfield area has to make a left turn thru that same traffic flow to continue on Route 43.


The easterly corner intersection, where NH Route 27 going from Candia to Raymond has to stop and enter the traffic going to and from Manchester is the least dangerous of the three, but does a poor job of handling turning traffic.


The RSA, a lengthy and comprehensive exercise, was conducted with representatives of the state, the municipality and potentially affected residents last summer. A draft of the results was reviewed by the participants. These final results will now go to NHDOT for design and future construction by the state.


The report and drawing plans of the proposed improvement options can be viewed at the below links.
