Montgomery County Water Services will be replacing and updating water main equipment on Franklin St between Lake Glen Ct and Clyo Rd. Included also in this project are the areas of Westpark Rd and Compark Rd. The work is scheduled to begin at 11 PM on Monday, August 16th and is expected to be completed by noon on Tuesday, August 17th. Road closures are not anticipated although traffic may be reduced to one lane at various times throughout the night.
A small number of residential and business customers whose water service will be affected will be individually notified. Informational door hangers have been distributed to affected addresses.
Other residents in nearby areas may experience a temporary discoloration of water. Residents are instructed to run cold water in their bathtubs until the discoloration disappears and the water is running clear.
“We are making every attempt to minimize the disruption of service in the area,” stated Greg Merrill, Water Services Director. “This enhancement to the system is being made to safeguard against future problems by replacing valves that are 50 plus years of age. We appreciate the patience and understanding of the public as we take this preventative action.”
