Attention Residents,


As you may have read in one of our previous newsletters, work has begun on the elevated water tank on Grove Road.  The rehabilitation of the tank includes, cleaning/painting of the exterior & interior, and various structural/safety repairs and upgrades.  In order for most of this work to be completed, the tank will need to be drained and emptied of water for approximately 6 weeks.  With the assistance of the tank contractor, we are implementing measures to avoid any interruption in water service to your home.  It is possible that you may notice a change in water pressure or irregular water pressure.  There will be 2 large portable pressure tanks installed within the village to help try & maintain your normal water pressure.  It may be possible that a major event could result in a sudden loss of pressure for the entire town, such as a well failure, a power outage, or water main break.  Hopefully these situations will be avoided & your water service will not be interrupted.  The tank is expected to be drained Friday July 28th, 2023.  We appreciate your patience during this time & we will send out any updates as needed.

Thank You
