Water main break in Woodville area could lead to discoloration

by | Dec 30, 2020 | News

Editor’s note: The Water and Sewer Department released the following information Wednesday morning.

Please be advised that crews are responding to a major water main break in the Woodville area. This break will cause discoloration throughout the water system. Please check your water before using it and you may need to flush your cold water lines before using them.

The Water and Sewer Department released the following update at 1 p.m.:

Please be advised that the water main break has been repaired and water restored to the area. Please check your water before using it and you may need to flush your cold water pipes before using it. Due to the large nature of the break, there could be several pockets that move back and forth through the system for several days as pumps turn off and on. Crews will be monitoring the situation and flush hydrants in the problem areas.

Another Water and Sewer Department update, 5:05 p.m.:

Due to the severity of the water break it may still take several hours for the water to clear. There could also be pockets that move back and forth through the system for several days as pumps turn off and on and the water flows reverse direction. We thank you for your patience as the department has dealt with multiple breaks in addition to this one in the past few weeks.

Another Water and Sewer Department update, Jan. 1:

Hopefully 2021 will be kinder to us all! Crews are still flushing hydrants for any remaining discoloration. There could still be some occasional smaller pockets that are still working their way through and settling out.

    These people should be fired and held responsible for those who will get sick from this. We have black water coming out of the faucet…

      Hey dingus, that’s what happens when water mains break. There’s nothing wrong with it and the DPW did a fantastic job. Give the Water Department super kudos!
