In addition, some residents in the area will see their water service disrupted from 7am to 7pm Wednesday. Once the service resumes, residents should expect the possibility of a boil water advisory to be issued.

The following streets will have their water shut off Wednesday, May 30:

  • Capital Ave. SW from Columbia Ave. to Golden Ave.
  • Hiawatha Dr. from Capital Ave. SW to Capital Ave. SW

The area and time of these shutoffs could be changed, if "unforeseen circumstances" come up during this work.
