     On Tuesday, August 21st water main work is scheduled to begin on Main St. between Holman St. and Francis Ave. On this date, new water valves will be installed on Holman St. and Main Street. We do not anticipate interruption of water service for adjacent area customers on this date. The roadway on Main St. will be restricted to one lane with the Westbound Lane closed to through traffic for a period of approximately eight hours. The lower section of Holman St. will also be closed during this period of time.

     The following day, Wednesday, August 22nd, water main and valve replacement work will continue in the same area. Main St. will be entirely closed in both directions and traffic rerouted on adjacent streets. Due to the work involved, water will be off for customers on both sides of Main St. from Holman St. to South Street, including all of Bruce Ave. along with Francis Ave., from the approximate intersection of Francis Gardens to Main Street. At this time, we anticipate that the water service will be off from 8 AM to 4 PM, barring any unforeseen circumstances. For these customers in the affected area, please adjust your planned activities and travel accordingly.

     Discolored water may also be encountered in the immediate and adjacent areas temporarily due to this work. If this situation does occur, please run water from an outside faucet closest to where the service line enters the residence, in order to prevent sediment from getting into plumbing fixtures within the household. If you have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 508-841-8506.
