5.31.2020 PUTNEY WATER SERVICE BREAK

All Putney water users in the Main Street area: due to the water line or water main break on Main Street, water service from Christian Square south is shut down. Crews (Chief Goddard & Brian Harlow Highway Department) are on the scene along with Simons Operations Services (Chris Hayes, Contractor and Joe Tetreault, Operator). Crews are working to isolate the break at this time. If the break is a service line, parts will be on the truck and can fixed in a short period of time. If the break is a water main break this is more comprehensive and will take longer depending on the extent of repair.

A break in the water line can trigger a “BOIL WATER ORDER”. We request residents impacted by this break to be vigilant and prepared. There is a strong possibility that an order will go into effect once water is restored as your drinking water supply may become contaminated on the way to the tap. This situation presents a significant health risk to users of the above described section of the Putney Water System.

As soon as we have more information on the extent of the break, we will notify residents.

Respectfully,
Karen M. Astley
Town Manager
