Services restored after unscheduled water outage on Nottingham Road in Avon
Editor’s note: This story has been updated to include the building affected by the emergency water outage.
UPDATE: Water service was restored to the affected areas at 9:20 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8. More details can be found at http://www.erwsd.org.
AVON – Water service is temporarily off to nine complexes on Nottingham Road in Avon due to a break in the water main associated with the town of Avon Nottingham Road sidewalk project. Repair crews are onsite and will stay until water service is restored, which is expected to be tonight (8/8).
The sidewalk project is underway along the north side of Nottingham Road, west of Buck Creek Road. Construction in the area has halted and resources have been redirected to fixing the main break.
The temporary water outage is affecting 160 to 410 Nottingham Road. If your property on a nearby road seems to be affected, please immediately notify the Customer Service department at 970-476-7480.
Emergency water outage began about 2 p.m., August 8, and is affecting these buildings:
- Benchmark at Beaver Creek – 160 Nottingham Road
- River Rock Townhomes – 180 Nottingham Road
- Balas Townhouse Condominium – 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
The town of Avon has made water and showers available at the Avon Recreation Center for those affected by the outage.
Once the repair is complete, properties may temporarily experience low water pressure until water lines refill. The emergency outage will likely 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 that do not have a screen – such as a bathtub or an outside spigot. Flush your lines until the water runs clear.
The valley’s commercial and residential property markets are similar in some ways — availability is tight and nothing is what you’d call “cheap.”
