Interrupting your water supply

We do not anticipate interrupting your water supply during construction. However, if it is necessary, it is our goal to let you know 48 hours (two days) in advance and minimize any disruption.

We will continue to give further updates as Phase 1 and Phase 2 construction progresses.
