    Water Main Repair – Elderberry

    Our crew repaired a water main on East Lane today, June 10th, and a boil water alert has been issued for a specific area. Those directly affected by the boil water alert have been notified via hand delivered notification. If you have not received a hand delivered notification, you are NOT affected by the boil water alert. Surrounding areas may notice a slight discoloration in their water when the work is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to maintain our infrastructure.    

    Hydrant flushing started this week per the schedule posted in our News Alerts and the notices received with your bill.

    To obtain a sanitary sewer easement permit or waiver:
    Please see the Sanitary Sewer/Water Easement Construction Permit Application under "Forms". Please ensure ALL required documentation is included or the application will be disapproved and sent back to you for resubmittal.   Due to an influx of applications, our review process has increased to 2-3 weeks for issuance of a permit and/or waiver. Missing documentation or improper submittal of the plot plan drawing to scale with ALL required measurements from the true property lines increases the review time.
