Water shut offs will only affect those residents that receive notices delivered to their homes, unless an emergency repair situation arises. If you experience any water discoloration, please run a cold tap until water runs clear, before running hot water.

(*)The Water Line Repair Work:

Replace 4 water valves and cut and cap an old 6” waterline that are all under the intersection of School Street / Pleasant Street. This will prevent water from leaking which would create the potential for ice build-up in the winter.
