Update – Fire Hydrant Installations Complete – Boil Water Notice in Effect for Affected Homes

99801
2

*********************
UPDATE: The fire hydrant installation project is now complete. A boil water notice is now in effect for the following homes

Balmoral Knoll – Address 32740

Briarcrest Knoll – Addresses 32390 through 32770

Briarcrest Ct – All homes

Friar Cir – All homes

Nottingham Knoll – Addresses 32220 through 32520

Lochmoor – Addresses 30065 and 30070

Tareyton – Addresses 32261 through 32455 (NOTE: Only Homes on the West side of the street – Odd number addresses)

Boil water notices have been hand carried to the affected homes. Please check your front door area for this notice. Here is a link to that notice.
Boil Water Notice
*********************

As stated in the boil water notice, we will post here on the blog when the boil water notice is lifted.
Also please help us spread the word about this project. Thank You

*********************

Key items to know:

– Once the water turned back on a boil water notice will be issued for a number of days.

– There are a number of tests that are performed after the repair to make sure the water is safe to use and allow us to cancel the boil water notice.

– A boil water notice will be taken to each home that is affected by the water shut down.

– Check your front door area for the notice. Additional information will be posted on the blog too.

– We also recommend shutting off the water valve on the water supply pipe in your basement if water is shut off to your home. This will help to keep air from entering the water system.

– Once the water is back on to your home it is suggested to turn on an outside water for at least 30 minutes to help in flushing out the system.

In the Fall of 2019 we gave notice that 3 fire hydrants in the neighborhood needed to be replaced.  This has been delayed many times now due to scheduling issues.

Updates will be posted here on our blog.

**This will require the water system to be shut down in the areas of the repairs. **

Here is the letter and map that was mailed out in the fall of 2019 (links below).

This is 1 area of the 3 we hope to get done today. Boil water notices will also be in effect for the other 2 sections as these repairs progress.

Also please help us spread the word about this project. Thank You

Key items to know:

– You might want to store water for drinking, cooking, flushing toilets etc ASAP so you have a backup in case the water is shut off to your home. Even water stored in your bathtub can be used for toilets.

– The targeted homes are listed in the documents at the link below but there is a possibility of this area could become larger if there is a problem shutting down the water lines in that area.

– We don’t know the amount of time to perform the repair but we think it will be 1 day.

– Once the water turned back on a boil water notice will be issued for a number of days.

– There are a number of tests that are performed after the repair to make sure the water is safe to use and allow us to cancel the boil water notice.

*********************

UPDATE: Week of October 26th – Installation of the hydrants will NOT happen this week.

We are going to wait until we get a firm date before posting another update. We will try to give you as much notice as possible. We will continue to communicate with the installer at least weekly.

*********************

In the Fall of 2019 we gave notice that 3 fire hydrants in the neighborhood needed to be replaced.  This has been delayed many times now due to scheduling issues. We still think we are going to get this project going soon but it is again being delayed due to emergency repairs at other sites.

We currently do not know the exact day of the install. As we get closer we let you know what day it will take place. We hope this will be a 1 day repair.  Updates will be posted here on our blog.

Water System Flushing Saturday, October 10th (9am – 1pm)

firehydrant

Water System Flushing Saturday, October 10th

Periodically, the FKHA Board will flush the mineral deposits from the fire hydrant lines.  This work is typically done by board member volunteers on a Saturday morning starting at 9:00 a.m. and continues for 3-4 hrs.

  • Signs will be posted near the entrance to the sub about a week in advance.
  • During the time frame of the flushing you should shut off the water to your house.   You should not use your water during this time
  • After the flushing is complete, you should run the hoses outside your house to clear any residual deposits.

Any questions pertaining to our drinking water, our water system, or the above recommendations please see our Contact Us page.

More info on what to do to care for the lines to your home can be found on our website on the “Services” menu.   Here is a direct link.
