Beginning Tuesday, July 13, the Service Department will conduct water valve exercising throughout the city. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency requires all public water systems to exercise valves regularly in order to ensure water infrastructure is working properly.
When crews are working in your neighborhood, you should expect low water pressure, or possibly no pressure, for brief periods of time.
Some homes may also experience discolored water. These residents should run their faucets on low pressure for two minutes to clear their pipes. If discoloration persists, please call the city at 419-468-1857.
Crews will begin valve exercising at the Brandt Road water tower and follow the transmission line that runs as follows:
East on Brandt Road
South on Fairview Avenue
East on Buehler Street
South on Knorr Road
East on Edward Street to Charles Street
East on Charles Street
South on Gelsanliter
West on Harding Way
South on Sixth Avenue
End at Dawsett Avenue
This will take several weeks to complete. The city will announce when crews shift to other water lines.
