SANTA BARBARA WATER MAIN PROJECT

ALERT:  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2019 WORK IS BEING DONE ON WILTSHIRE BETWEEN SANTA BARBARA AND SUNET.



Dear Residents,
The City began construction on a new water main along Santa Barbara from 11 Mile north to Roseland, east on Roseland to Bloomfield & north on Bloomfield to 12 Mile. As part of this project there will be times when your water might be turned off.  We apologize but we do not know when you could be affected, but on that day our DPS employees will knock on your door to inform you.  It will be out aproximately a few hours.  When the water is turned back on you may encounter brown water and/or air in your lines.  To address this issue go to the lowest point in your home and run the
COLD water until it appears clear and the air pockets disappear.  Please do this BEFORE turning on your water in the rest of your home.  If you experience low water pressure you will need to remove and clear your faucet aerators.
The City appreciates your patience during this process.
If you have any questions please call the City office at (248)557-2600.
