UPDATE: George Street Water Main Break Repaired, Service Restored

UPDATE: The George Street water main break has been repaired.

George Street and Church Street have been reopened and water service has been restored to affected areas.

A boil water advisory is NOT in effect. Water remains safe for use.



UPDATE: George Street remains closed between Paterson Street and Church Street due to a break in a 16-inch water main on George Street. Church Street also remains closed between George Street and Neilson Street.

Our water utility continues to work through the night to rectify the break. Our goal is to restore full service overnight.

Water remains safe for use at this time. Further updates will continue to be posted to the City’s FB page and website regarding the status of the break, including the time of full service restoration when it is completed.

We appreciate the patience of all community members as we handle repairs and service restoration.
