Temporary water outage for Avon sidewalk project, Aug. 14, on Nottingham Road
AVON — Water service will be temporarily shut down starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, to a portion of Nottingham Road in Avon as part of the town of Avon’s Nottingham Road sidewalk project. Water service will be restored to the affected area no later than 5 p.m. that day.
The sidewalk project is underway along the north side of Nottingham Road, west of Buck Creek Road, and requires replacing and relocating Eagle River Water & Sanitation District hydrants that serve the area. The water main serving the project area will be isolated so the hydrant work can occur.
The temporary water outage will affect buildings served by the isolated section of main, generally 160 to 410 Nottingham Road. If the primary area cannot be isolated, then the temporary outage will also affect a secondary area to the west, from 420 to 710 Nottingham Road.
The water outage will affect the following buildings:
• Benchmark at Beaver Creek, 160 and 180 Nottingham Road
• Balas Townhouse Condominiums, 211 Nottingham Road
• Sunnyside at Avon, 220 Nottingham Road
• Rushmer Townhomes, 230 Nottingham Road
• Balas West, 231 Nottingham Road
• Sonnen Halde, 331 Nottingham Road
• Sherwood Meadows, 371 Nottingham Road
• Nightstar Residences, 410 Nottingham Road
A potential water outage could occur at these buildings:
• Chambertin HOA, 420–440 Nottingham Road
• Assembly of God, 480 Nottingham Road
• Alpenhaus Townhomes, 510 Nottingham Road
• Snowrun Townhomes, 520 Nottingham Road
• Beacon Hill HOA, 600 Nottingham Road
• Bristol Pines HOA, 600 Nottingham Road
• Grandview HOA, 690 Nottingham Road
• Avon car wash, 710 Nottingham Road
No new water will be able to move to mains that carry water uphill to tanks serving Wildridge and Mountain Star while the Nottingham Road water main is isolated. Pumping to these areas will stop Tuesday morning, right before the main is isolated.
Mountain Star and Wildridge will have water service, although the district is asking residents to reduce water use to preserve water stored in the neighborhood tanks in case of a fire emergency. Eagle River Fire Protection District is aware of the work and potential fire flow limitations.
Once the Nottingham Road work is complete, crews will reopen the valves in the water main and water service will be restored at all buildings. Properties may temporarily experience low water pressure until water lines refill. As normal operations resume, district staff will pump water to Wildridge and Mountain Star to refill storage tanks, though customers are asked to limit outdoor water use while tanks are refilling.
To prepare for a temporary water service outage, fill a bathtub or large bucket with water for hand washing and toilet flushing, and fill several pitchers for drinking or cooking needs. The temporary outage is expected to stir up sediment that may briefly cause discolored water in some properties and will also likely cause cloudy water due to air in the system. The water is safe to drink and you can clear your pipes by running faucets, tubs or an outside spigot. Flush your lines until the water runs clear.
