The final water line connection will be made on Haines Ave 12/12-12/13, and as a result water will be shut off in the area Monday December 12th beginning at 11 p.m. through the morning of Tuesday December 13th around 5 a.m. 

Residents may experience a short-term discoloration of their water. If flushing (letting the faucet run for a few minutes) does not remove the discoloration or if the service remains interrupted, please call the Division of Water, Water Engineering Office at 614.645.7677. 

Heavy equipment and artificial light will be used during this construction. If you have any questions, please contact Paul Baker at 614.206.4023.
