Town to turn water off for valve replacements

The Town of Pinebluff will be working on digging up water valves on Wednesday, Jan. 11, and the water will be shut off on Thursday, Jan. 12 to install water valves to eliminate having to turn the whole town off when we have water leaks, announced the town of its website.

The work will be on West Chicago Avenue and U.S. Hwy 1 and East Philadelphia Avenue and U.S. Hwy 1.

Once service is restored, customers may notice cloudiness or air in the lines. The town will flush hydrants, but residents are advised to flush their pipes to remove excess air.

If conditions persist for more than a few days, contact the Town Hall at 910-281-3124.

“We are asking that our citizens and water customers be patient as our Public Works crew work diligently to replace these valves,” said the town. “Sometimes unforeseen things happen, and the water may have to be turned off for a longer period of time than what we anticipated. Please be patient and understanding, as we work to get these needed repairs completed.”
