Public water service interruption

| Monday, April 19, 2004 12:00 a.m

Customers of The North Fayette County Municipal Authority located on Works Hill, Laurel Mall, Route 119 from Cavert Wire to Ranch Road, (including Penn State, Dunbar School, West Virginia Career School, NuMetrics, Technology Park and Ray’s Lake Road will have an interruption of their public water supply on from 9 to 11 a.m. April 20. This will permit the authority’s contractor to perform some maintenance items and to upgrade the electrical controls of the booster station at the Industrial Park along Mount Braddock Road.

Customers should store water prior to 9 a.m. for use during the interruption period. Discolored and cloudy water may occur on Tuesday after the water is restored and probably into Wednesday. The authority asks that customers not do any laundry on Tuesday after the shutdown, if possible, and to check their tap water before doing any laundry on Wednesday. If you do have some discolored water let the tap water run for a few minutes. This will eliminate the discolored water that may have reached the service line. Cloudy water indicates that there is a mixture of air in the water and will dissipate after being drawn.

Any questions or special concerns should be directed to the authority at 724-626-1211 or 724-438-7361.


Carnegie Free Library of Connellsville will reopen its doors today. The library was closed from April 12 to 17 due to building changes for the installation of an elevator. Although the library will reopen, installation is not yet complete. Julie Allen, director of the library, asks the public’s patience and understanding during this inconvenience.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
