Stoddard Avenue Water Leak
Last modified on August 18th, 2021 at 09:02 am
Update: Because of forecasted heavy rains, the leak repair on Stoddard Avenue previously planned for Wednesday is now scheduled to commence Thursday (8/19) at 1 p.m. The resulting outage/low pressure is mainly expected to affect customers on Stoddard Avenue (including Gateway Apartments), Patricia Avenue, and the D&E campus. Other customers may be affected as well.
The city has received multiple reports of an ongoing low-volume water-main leak on Stoddard Avenue. Repair work on this leak is scheduled to commence Wednesday (8/18).
This timing is a result of several factors, including:
- A shorthanded Water Distribution Department.
- The scheduled absence of several department employees for mandatory training early next week.
- The preference of our partners at Davis & Elkins College that water service to the campus not be interrupted during student move-in this weekend.
When work commences on Wednesday (8/18), the resulting outage/low pressure is mainly expected to affect customers on Stoddard Avenue (including Gateway Apartments), Patricia Avenue, and the D&E campus.
We will provide more specific notifications as the work commences.
