Emergency Water Pipe Repair, Boston Post Road

Be advised: An emergency water pipe repair is underway at 214 Boston Post Road. Water service on Boston Post Road (between the intersection’s Lanhdam Road and Green Hill Road) will be temporarily interrupted allowing for repair. Service is anticipated to be restored within 5 hours however outage duration is a best-estimate based on past emergency events it is not an exact time. Residents and businesses located on Boston Post Road (between Landham Road and Greenhill Road) should make arrangements to be without water during this period.

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work hard to restore water service to this area as quickly as possible.

What to expect once water is restored? Those in close proximity to this area of town may experience fluctuating pressure (air in pipes) or discolored water (mineral sediment lifting from the bottom of the pipes and traveling with the water-flow inside the main.) Once water is restored running a cold tap briefly will assist in clearing your service line of air and minerals.

Is the water safe to drink? Slight discoloration may sometimes linger for a few hours, it is not harmful to your health and only temporarily affects the appearance of the water, it does not influence water quality. Water conditions typically improve overnight.
