Public Works repairing water mains


With a trio of water mains to repair Sunday and Monday, Public Works has “lots on the go,” Raymond Roy, Superintendent of Public Operations, said Monday morning.

“We’re pretty busy,” he remarked, noting crews were working on a minor repair on Idylwild Drive as well as a “pretty big break” on Sixth Street West.

But Roy added the disruption to service on the second break affects only one resident, and that Public Works has run an alternate line to the home to provide it with continued water service.

The town also wrapped up a repair on Keating Avenue on Monday morning after a water main broke there over the weekend due to a change in the temperature.

“The pipe sheared. It would have to be because the ground shifted,” said Roy, adding residents did not lose water service to their homes, just a decrease in water pressure.

Roy added some west-end residents may have experienced lowered water pressure before Public Works repaired the main as it was one of the main feeder lines from the water tower.

“But everything should be back to normal for them now,” he noted.
