Water Main Upgrades Underway in Royston

Water main upgrades are underway in Royston, on Gartley Road and Gartley Point Road. As a result, temporary disruptions of water service will occur in the area. The first scheduled water shutdown will occur on Tuesday May 28, 2019, between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Impacted residents have been notified via letter.

It is recommended that effected residents stockpile a supply of drinking water in advance of the scheduled shutdown, and store other water as needed for use during the service disruptions, such as filling the bathtub for emergency use and toilet flushing. Once water service is restored, it is recommended that you run an outside tap for a short period of time to release any air that may remain in the system as a result of the work, before returning to regular indoor water use.
