Moriah plans water shutoff as part of bridge work

MORIAH — The Town of Moriah Water Department will shut off the water on Friday, Sept. 27, and Saturday, Sept. 28, from midnight to 4 a.m. in Water District #1, from Moriah Center south to the top of Broad Street and including all of Water District #4, to move a water line for the Moriah Center Bridge replacement project.

If the water is shut off more than four hours a boil-water order will be put in place.

It is recommended that users shut off their boilers or hot-water heaters and close the main valve coming into the home to prevent the possibility of siphoning water from the boiler or hot-water heater, a press release from the town said. 

“If you do not have a main valve or are not sure of its location, you can contact the Water Department at 942-3340 or the Town Clerk office at 546-3341.” 

If the water is cloudy once it is turned on again, users are asked to run their outside hose until it clears.
