Water Update 01/12/2018 (9:15 AM EST)

Yet another water break has been located on Oakland Street, between Stanton Avenue and Pearl Avenue. The line has been shut off until repairs are finished, so water pressure to residents in the surrounding area should equalize soon. Only a handful of residents will be without water until the leak is repaired.

Residents on the west side of town may notice sediment in the water. Typically, fire hydrants can be flushed to help expedite moving the discoloration out of the line, however due to the overwhelming amount of rain and water in this region, Public Works will not be able to flush hydrants at this time. Residents should allow water to run until it becomes clear.

We appreciate our residents keeping us informed so we could address this new break — the third in four days — right away.
