EMERGENCY NOTICE – GRAND GORGE WATER CUSTOMERS

As of Sunday July 25, 2021

We have a major water main break on State Highway 23 in front of the Post Office. Crews will not be mobilizing at the scene until tomorrow morning to make the repair, wanting to make sure they have all the necessary parts.

What this means for you:

*All water customers NOT located on State Hwy 23 from the State Hwy 23/30 intersection and east to the end of the water district:

Water will be off tonight and most of tomorrow to make the repair.  Please anticipate your water needs for this period of time.  Once water is restored let it run a few minutes until it becomes clear as it may be dirty or riled.

*All water customers located on State Hwy 23 from the State Hwy 23/30 intersection and east to the end of the water district:

Because the Roxbury Water Reservoir lost water due the Grand Gorge break, and Grand Gorge is fed by Roxbury, water had been shut off from Roxbury to re-fill the Roxbury reservoir.  Once the reservoir is filled water should be able to be turned back on to Grand Gorge.  You will then have water from the Grand Gorge Water Tank so you should not lose water service.  However, there is a possibility you may lose water.

I have not been informed of a Boil Water Notice needed after water is restored and will keep you posted on that as it become available to me.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Diane Pickett, Town Clerk
