Prepare for Water Outage: South Elkins and Wilson Hill
City of Elkins is responding to a break in a 12-inch transmission line near Builder’s Supply. When we shut off water to this line, customers throughout South Elkins, including Jennings Randolph Elementary School, and customers in a large section of Second Ward, including Wilson Hill and Elkins Middle School, will lose water pressure until repairs are completed.
We do not plan to shut this line down until school is dismissed. However, because of the size of the line and resulting high water pressure, there is a risk of an additional large rupture that will effectively shut off water service to the areas mentioned.
Please begin making preparations for a sudden loss of water service in these areas. (Note that map is very approximate and may not capture all areas that would be affected. If you are near the indicated zone, you should make preparations.)
