All affected residents will have a notice posted on their doors. This project will include replacement of all water services up to and including the curb stop along this main. Affected residents will receive a notice delivered to them prior to these repairs being made.

Main St. All affected properties will receive a notice delivered to them. If you do not receive a notice you are not affected by this project.
