Butler Road – Section I
New water lines are currently being tested for pressure and bacteria. As soon as testing is complete, lines will be tied-in to main valves at Glen Morris and Railroad. Tie-in work at these two locations will occur from 10 PM – 6 AM. Fewer properties than anticipated will be affected – only those on Butler Road, from 3rd Avenue to Central Avenue. All property owners will receive 48 hours written notice prior to the water shut off. The Contractor will leave the notice at your door. Once that work is complete, each Butler Road property will be connected to the new line. That will require a 15-20 minute water shut off. Property owners will be notified by a knock at the door.
It is highly recommended that each time your water is turned on/off, you flush your line. The best way to do this is to open an outside hose bib, or to run the water in your lowest or first to enter the house indoor faucet, until it runs clear.
Once the above is complete, Butler Road properties will be served by new water lines, and will not see construction again until next spring or summer when the road is repaved and the old fire hydrants removed.
