Sept. 28, Metcalf Road water service outage

September 28, 2023
Metcalf Road emergency water outage.

5:30 p.m. Sept. 28, 2023

Water service has been restored and the valve repair is complete.

11:15 a.m. Sept. 28, 2023

Approximately 30-40 businesses on Metcalf Road in Avon, just north of I-70, are without water service to repair a broken valve. Crews are onsite and will remain onsite until water service is restored. Properties impacted are outlined in red in the image above.

Once the repair is complete, crews 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.
