Planned Water Service Interruption, Downtown Water System Maintenance Work: Week 11

As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours.

The eleventh week of scheduled valve work segments will be on August 29 and 30.   Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule: 
 

Monday, August 29, from 7:00 p.m. to Tuesday, August 30 at 5:00 a.m.
  • N. Palafox St., between E. Gregory St. and  E. Garden St.
  • E. Chase St., between N. Baylen St. and N. Tarragona St.
Tuesday, August 30, from 10:00 p.m. to Wednesday, August 31 at 5:00 a.m.:
  • E. Wright St., between N. Alcaniz St. and N. 9th Ave.
Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible, as a result of the flushing / maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes, and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.

    Planned Water System Maintenance Downtown: Week 4...Click Here

    Current Status: Alert Cancelled
    Friday, July 1, 2016
    01:33 pm CDT

     

    As part of the Authority’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, the ECUA has scheduled a water main flushing program in designated downtown Pensacola areas for Fall 2016.  Flushing water mains requires the temporary interruption of water service.  In preparation for this project, ECUA crews will be replacing old valves and inserting additional valves at strategic points in the distribution system over the next few months.  This valve work will help isolate and minimize the areas impacted by the interruption of water service during the flushing activities and during any future water system utility maintenance work. Water service will also be temporarily interrupted while this valve work is performed.   In order to minimize the inconvenience to our customers, most of the work will be scheduled at night after most businesses and restaurants are closed, and will be restored in the early morning hours. 

     The fourth scheduled valve work segment will on Wednesday, July 6.  Water service will be interrupted per the following schedule:  

    •   Wednesday, July 6, from 2:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.: 
      S. Jefferson Street, between E. Intendencia Street and E. Government St.; 
      E. Government Street, between S. Palafox Street and S. Alcaniz Street

    Residents and businesses located in the designated areas may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure.   Temporary discoloration of the water is common and possible, as a result of the flushing / maintenance activities.  This is normal and may be corrected by running the cold water only for ten to fifteen minutes.   These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes, and to prepare for the likely precautionary boil water notice that would be issued under a separate notice.

    Residents and businesses located in this area may anticipate some fluctuations in water pressure, and temporary discoloration of the water is possible as a result of turbulence in the water mains created by the flushing.  These effects should be minimal, with absolutely no ill effects to customers' health and no long-term adverse impacts on the system.  As a precaution, customers may wish to store some water ahead of time for drinking and cooking purposes.   Also, running the water at the tap for a few minutes will generally clear up any issues.  ECUA crews will remain in the area, flushing lines if necessary to clear up affected areas.   If customers are still experiencing discoloration in their water two hours after flushing crews have left the area, they are asked to call 476-0480 for assistance
