Public Notice – Date Change

Due to the Impending Inclement Weather:

Water will now be shut off on the South Side of Town on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 21, 22, and 23, 2017, from approximately 10:30 pm until 6:00 am.

During this timeframe, the Town will be installing three new water valves.  This is a necessary step in the process of creating a looped water system, which will reduce the number of customers that will experience a water outage in the event of a future water main break.  These dates and timeframes were selected in an effort to minimize the impact to our customers. During construction, you may experience a slight discoloration in your water.  We will make every effort to complete the work in less time than the amount allotted. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work to improve the Town’s infrastructure.
