12.08.2020; 1:15 PM: Staff are finishing cleaning and cold patching the road where the repairs took place.  The road will be open soon to traffic.  The water is back on.

12.08.2020; 11:10 AM:  The repair to the 10" water main has been made. Water department staff are currently opening valves and flushing the system.  Positive water pressure has been maintained on the system, so staff do not anticipate having to issue a boil water advisory.  E Front is closed between Monroe and Macomb for the continuing work.

12.08.2020; 9:15 AM:  The breaks have been located and are being repaired, including a large diameter transmission main shut down from Monroe Street to Murray Street. Customers between Monroe and Washington Street along East Front will temporarily have no water.

Crews are onsite trying to isolate the breaks for repairs. The shutdown area could be from Adams Street to Murray Street along East Front Street.

Further updates will be posted here.
