Emergency Water Pipe Repair, Tanbark Road at Hemlock Road

Be advised: An emergency water pipe repair is underway on Tanbark Road at the intersection of Hemlock Road. Water service on Tanbark Road No’s 7-33 and Hemlock Road No’s 64-78 will be temporarily interrupted allowing for repair. Service is anticipated to be restored within 8 hours (5:00 pm) however outage duration is a best-estimate based on past emergency events it is not an exact time. Public water users located on this portion of Tanbark and Hemlock Roads 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.
