Construction tomorrow to replace a water main in Collegetown will stop or limit water flow to several parts of the City of Ithaca tomorrow.
As announced by the city, the following blocks are impacted, likely from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8. The work was rescheduled from Monday.
- The entire 100 block of Catherine Street will not have water service.
- The 300 block of College Avenue will not have water service.
- Customers in the 100 block of Dryden Road, 400 block of Eddy Street, and 200 block of Williams Street will have limited water service provided by a temporary City connection. Please follow all typical water conservation measures to ensure that this supply is not affected.
Otherwise, no other parts of the city are predicted to be affected.
"Existing piping configuration inadequacies in the intersection of Dryden Road and College Avenue will necessitate the installation of a new valve to allow for the recently constructed water main to be connected," the announcement said. "This will require a water system shut down that will affect a wide area of Collegetown. While the Department of Water & Sewer will make every effort possible to reduce the impact that a service outage of this type will have on the local community, many will be without water or, may experience pressure loss for the duration of the shutdown which will last anywhere from 2-4 hours."
