The Village of Watkins Glen will temporarily shut off its water supply early Tuesday morning, February 13th, for crucial repairs. Scheduled from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m., this interruption is to facilitate repairs on a major pipe on Steuben Street as part of a larger water system improvement project. Village Mayor Laurie DeNardo emphasized the effort to minimize disruption by choosing off-peak hours for the shutdown.
This shutdown is a key phase of the Village of Watkins Glen Water System Improvement Project, aligned with the New York State Home and Community Renewal Project. Mayor DeNardo highlighted the project’s significance, noting its $30 million investment aimed at upgrading the village’s water infrastructure, a development eagerly anticipated by the community.
Residents and businesses are advised to stay informed via the Village of Watkins Glen’s Facebook page, where updates, including the restoration of the water supply, will be promptly shared. Mayor DeNardo is optimistic the shutdown will not extend the full four hours, ensuring minimal impact on the village’s daily activities.
