We have an emergency water main repair on Maple Street & Spruce Court, affecting Kettenacker to Highway 55 (this includes Rockford River Estates). Water service will temporarily be disrupted for possibly most of the day, we will provide more information as it becomes available.
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 emergency repairs. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions please contact City Hall at 763-477-6565.
