Middle Creek Village Apartments planned outage

Planned water service outage at Middle Creek Village Apartments on Nov. 17

A planned Nov. 17 water main valve replacement on South Frontage Rd. will cause a temporary interruption of water service at Middle Creek Village Apartments on North Frontage Rd.

The temporary water service outage will start no earlier than 8 a.m. and is scheduled to be complete by 5 p.m.

To prepare for a temporary water service outage, fill a bathtub or large bucket with water for hand washing and toilet flushing, and fill several pitchers for drinking or cooking needs. To flush a toilet during a water outage, pour a bucket of water into the bowl all at once. Learn how by watching this short video.

Once the repair is complete, crews will reopen valves on the water main to restore water service. Properties may temporarily experience low water pressure until water lines refill. A temporary outage normally entraps some air in the water distribution system, which can cause water to have a cloudy appearance. It also stirs up sediment in water mains that may briefly cause discolored water. The water is safe to drink. To clear your pipes of entrapped air and discoloration, run cold water faucets that do not have a screen, such as those in tubs or an outside spigot. Flush your lines until the water runs clear.
