On Thursday, February 23, 2023, residents in the area of the 500 block of Helm and West Wabash Avenue will have a water outage, as the water department installs new water valves. The project is scheduled to run from 8:00am to Noon. Approximately 17 homes will be affected and crews are directly notifying those customers. Helm Street will be CLOSED between Cicott Street and Barron Street while the work is being completed. Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area and seek an alternative route.
Below are tips to prepare for a planned water outage.
Before the water outage:
-Fill pots on the stove with water for cooking.
-Fill a couple of buckets with water for washing.
-Fill potable water containers for drinking. Assume about one gallon of drinking water per person per day.
-Fill bathtubs with water and use buckets to flush toilets. A toilet will flush when approximately a gallon of water is dumped into the bowl.
During the water outage:
Try not to operate the water faucets. This will prevent air from entering your plumbing.
