Outage Duration Estimate:
Reason for Outage:
Water Utility Repair on Goodman’s Hill Road
Please Be advised: On Wednesday, July 19th during the hours of 10 am – 3 pm (approximately) water service on Goodman’s Hill Road (from 27 Goodman’s Hill Road to the intersection of Old Lancaster Road) and Walker Farm Road will be temporarily suspended allowing for a water utility repair. Homes and businesses 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.) Running your water from a cold tap after water is restored 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.
Preparing for a planned water outage:
Fill pots on the stove with water for cooking
Fill a couple of buckets with water for washing
Fill potable water containers for drinking (assume about one gallon of drinking water per person per day)
Fill bathtubs with water and use buckets to flush toilets, a toilet will flush when approximately a gallon of water is dumped into the bowl
During a Water Outage:
Try not to operate water faucets, dishwashers, or washing machines. This will prevent air from entering your plumbing.
