On March 14th, 2022, City utility crews will be removing and replacing a leaking water valve at 6th Street and Pacific Avenue. This particular valve is a branch-off of a major water main for the City and in order to remove the valve quickly and safely, crews must reduce pressure and volume in the major water main. This could cause connecting neighborhoods to have lower than normal water pressure for several hours on March 14th. This potential affected area is indicated below by the red-line boundary.
Crews will began work around 8:00am and do their best to limit the duration of possible lower than normal pressure, but the age of the leaking valve and connecting main may cause additional problems as work unfolds. Crews are prepared to handle any unexpected complications, but please know that such issues might further delay the return of normal water pressure.
