Pardon Our Appearance…you may have noticed construction materials and/or piping on Belleview Avenue, Browning Drive, Clinton Avenue, Linden Avenue, Noel Drive, Oakhill Terrace, Overton Road, Underhill Road, Upper Eastern and Walden Road. This is due to a water main cleaning and lining project that the Village is undertaking. The project will clean and re-line water mains that service some areas of the Village and will ensure delivery of clean, potable water for many years to come. As with any project of this magnitude, there will be some slight inconvenience and we appreciate your patience. If you are on any of the streets listed above you may see bypass water pipes laid above ground to service homes as well as to provide for fire protection. These lines usually run on top of the curb line and will have to cross driveways and roadways at various locations. There are also access pits in roadways to allow the Village’s contractor to clean and cement line the mains. Work is anticipated to continue until late fall.
We apologize for any inconveniences you may experience during the course of this project and look forward to the benefits that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
