The need for the water shut-off is to repair a water valve. Some residents on Maple Street and Ash Street (between Bridge Street and Highway 55) will be affected. Water service will be shut off Monday, January 13, 2020 at approximately 9am until 3pm.
Following the shutdown residents may experience a discoloration in the water on the first use. This discoloration is due to mineral deposits that have settled out of the water over time and has been stirred up during the shut down. The water is safe to drink, the City recommends the property owner runs an outside faucet, or basement faucet (cold water) until the discoloration is gone to prevent the mineral deposits from being run through water heaters, or faucet filters, which may result in the plugging of faucets and water heaters.
We understand the inconveniences the community experiences during these types of repairs. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions please contact Trevor Brummer at (612-490-6506)
