Water Service Alerts
Periodically we perform regular required maintenance to our water system to ensure that our water is always clean and safe to drink. One of those requirements is to run fresh water through our storage tower. We have shut off the water supply from Granville and are currently using water from our water storage tower. We do this on a regular basis to re-chlorinate the tower water and ensure that it is always fresh and of the highest quality possible. When we turn the supply back on from Granville, Tuesday afternoon December 22, 2020 to re-fill the tower we may see some discoloration in our water. This is completely normal and totally safe to drink. It will clear up in 24 hours or less, most likely by Tuesday evening it will be back to normal.
Water Service Project
When the workers get to your house in most cases you are only without water a couple hours. They do not turn off anyone’s water and leave. So, if you have been without water more than a couple hours, or they seem to be packing up, or it’s approaching 5:PM. Don’t hesitate to call me or walk out and ask them how long it will be. We have had a couple instances where something has plugged the water line when they restore service and if no one tells them they are not aware that your water isn’t coming in the house. For the most part the project is proceeding very well, we are probably two thirds or more through the project and have had very few problems. Mostly because you have been very patient and worked with the construction workers.
