If you are affected by a water main break, please inform us of any significant loss of pressure or if the water appears cloudy or rusty. Customers will be notified if and when a shut off of water will be required for repairs. If the water main break is in front of your property, please remove any vehicles that are parked in the area where the crews will be working and any vehicles parked in your driveway if you need to leave your residence.
