     On Monday, September 16th, 2019, a water main break occurred on Ireta Road near #15 Ireta Rd., due to a contractor excavating to prepare for water main replacement work on the old water main at the intersection of Ireta Road and Main Street. At this time, the Water Division Crew is onsite working to resolve this situation. The water is turned off temporarily from #1 to #64 Ireta Rd., in order to make the necessary repairs to the water main. The estimated time for repair is approximately 2 hours, in which the anticipated completion time is 4:30 P.M.


 This issue and repair work may cause discolored water in the immediate and adjacent areas. If you experience discolored water, please avoid hot water use and run the cold water on an outside faucet or downstairs bathtub, until it runs clear.

If you have any questions, please contact us at (508)841-8506. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
