The need has arisen for United Water technicians to replace valves on the water main serving portions of Main Street in downtown Bloomsburg. Valves control the flow of water through the mains and periodically need to be replaced, sometimes on short notice.
This work will be performed during early morning hours on July 23 and July 25 to minimize inconvenience to businesses and residences whose water service will be impacted by the project. Affected customers are being notified by means of written notice delivered to their location.
The first valve replacement project will occur between 3:00 and 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 23 affecting water service to United Water customers on Main Street from Town Hall north along Light Street Road to just below Penn Street. The second valve replacement project will occur during these same hours on Thursday, July 25 affecting water service to customers primarily on Main Street between Iron and Market Streets in the downtown. However, some customers on Main Street in the vicinity of Town Hall could also experience sporadic water service outages during these hours on July 25.
United Water Crew members will continue working at street level on both dates to facilitate resurfacing through 12:00 p.m. Flaggers will be deployed to assist with traffic control during the time that the work is performed.
United Water thanks affected customers for their patience and cooperation in view of the need for these necessary improvements to assure proper water flow.
