Notice of Interruption of Water Service – Town of Gravenhurst – September 6, 2018

Posted on Wednesday September 05, 2018

VIA DISTRICT OF MUSKOKA

Please be advised that water service will be interrupted in the areas listed below on Thursday Sept. 6 2018 8:30A a.m. until approximately 5:00 p.m.

The affected homes and businesses will be 180 Jones Rd to the end. All of Forrest Glen Dr., Industrial Dr., and Progress Rd.   Please see map.

The District advises you affected residents to turn off your hot water tank valves or to turn off the breaker switch to your electric hot water tank to avoid burning out the elements.   On gas fired hot water tanks, we recommend that you turn off the cold water inlet valve for the tank. Do not shut off the gas supply line.

If you require advice or assistance in turning off your hot water tank please contact our department at Telephone (705) 645-6764 OR 1-800-281-3483 or email publicworks@muskoka.on.ca.

We would also recommend turning off the water supply valve that is usually located at the water meter. Turning this valve off will stop any water from back flowing from your residence, which would cause air to enter your system.

The District would like to thank everyone in the affected area for their cooperation during these necessary repairs.
