Oakland Park Water Main Test Shutoff

November 14 – 11:09 am: Water pressure will be low on Oakland Park for a few minutes.
Oakland County WRC (our water system maintenance partner) is here testing valves. We need to replace a 100 year old fire hydrant that broke during the sewer lining project. WRC is testing valves to make sure that we can shut off the water main to make that replacement.
Once water service is restored your water will likely be brown for a few minutes. Run a tap for 5-10 minutes and the water will clear. The brown water is caused by sediment being loosened from the old cast iron water mains.
