Water Main Breaks July 28, 2020

Two water main breaks occurred Tuesday 7/28. The first on Central Street- repairs were completed around 1:30pm. The second break was on Bowen Street and crews worked through the afternoon to finish repairs. Water was turned on slowly starting at about 4:45. The WBWD crew anticipates the system to re-pressurize overnight, but cautions there may be murky water for a few days due to the large disruption of the water system. They recommend turning on cold water faucets, especially outdoors, to help clear out the system once pressure has been fully restored, and will be flushing hydrants as necessary around town. The entire staff thanks our water customers for their patience throughout the day.
