Commonwealth Utilities Corp. water customers in the vicinity of Capital Hill will experience a temporary service outage today, Sept. 21, as work continues on the Capital Hill Pressure Improvement and Waterline Project.
The nine-hour water outage is scheduled from 7:30am to 4:30pm, as CUC’s contractor, MPC Inc., replaces three gate valves and connects a new pressure reducing valve on the newly installed distribution line in preparation for the waterline upgrade in the area.
The water outage will affect customers along East Isa Dr. from Sarah Market to the Kagman Mobil Station. Customers along Atbut Dr., Ifet Dr., Chunge Pl., Fakpe Pl., Egigi Dr., Fahang Dr., and Papago Dr. will also be affected but only for approximately three hours.
As a result of the project, customers will experience improved system pressure and a more reliable water system. Because of the scale of the work to be performed, CUC urges motorists to exercise caution when driving through the construction sites.
