New water services are being installed from the new water main to the existing b-box within the Village right-of-way. New services will not be installed all the way to your home. During water service installation, water to individual homes will be turned off while the transition is made. Typically the water is turned off for 1-hour. The contractor will knock on the door of each home prior to turning off the water. It is difficult to determine the exact timing of the water shut-off; therefore, 24-hour notice is not given. The contractor will work with you to determine the best time to shut-off the water to the greatest extent possible.

Due to the condition of the existing water main, there have been several water main breaks during the water service replacements. Most of these repairs are being made without needing to turn off the water main; however, in several instances the water main has been required to be turn off to make the needed repairs. We apologize for these inconveniences. We are committed to letting all affected residents know about the emergency shut-downs as quickly as possible and to reduce the amount of time the water main is turned off to the greatest extent possible. We thank you for your understanding.

This week, there will be several scheduled water main shut downs to make the connections between the existing water main and newly installed water main. For this work, residents will be notified 24-hours prior to the water main being turned off.
