Planned Water Service Outage for Repairs – Sandalwood Subdivision – January 30 through February 1, 2019

Planned Water Service Outage Notification

In order to replace failed water isolation valves serving Sandalwood Subdivision in Brunswick, water service will be intermittent from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. from Wednesday, January 30 through Friday, February 1. Homeowner access will be maintained and efforts will be made to maintain traffic flow throughout the neighborhood.

Following the repair process on Wednesday, a precautionary boil water advisory will be issued once full service has been restored. This advisory will extend until 18 to 24 hours following the last point of repair, with the all-clear tentatively expected for Saturday afternoon.

This is the fourth planned outage for Sandalwood since October 2018. The work is being performed in an effort to comprehensively correct material failures that have occurred and prevent those that are expected to occur due to substandard galvanized materials installed by the private utility contractor when the neighborhood was originally developed. In many cases, the materials were the best available at the time but new technology is available now. Our expectation is that we will see a substantial increase in reliability for this system, reducing the risk of water pressure loss in the future.

The BGJWSC apologizes in advance for the inconvenience.
