ELMIRA WATER BOARD
Carrollton Avenue Water Main Replacement Project
Starting next week, April 1, 2013, the Elmira Water Board will be replacing the water main on a portion of Carrollton Avenue from 89 Carrollton south to the dead end.
This work will require us to dig in the street in front of your home. During the work we will close a portion of the street, but we will do whatever we can to accommodate local residents.
During the final phase of the project the water service line to your home will be temporarily shut off so we can attach it to the new main, however, before we do this we will notify you. The service work will be only on the portion of the line that is in the City’s right of way and will not include any portion of the line on private property.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this work might cause.
If you have any questions, please call 607-737-8854 or 607-733-9179.
