The following are the latest updates and projected timeline for completion of water main work along Route 11 in Brewerton, Town of Cicero:
• All new water main lines have been installed
• All new water main has been tested & chlorinated with all bacteriological samples passing. Health Dept approval has been received.
• All services have been transferred to the new main. If you notice that you have no water, please contact OCWA @ 315-455-7061 ext. 3104 during business hours. 315-455-5342 nights & weekends.
• Cuts & caps to abandon the old water main started on 5-20-20. Most times a shutdown of the water is required to complete the cut & cap.
• When a shutdown for the cut and cap is required, we will provide customers a 24 hour notice and a time frame for how long your water will be off. The cuts and caps are all different and usually take 1-4 hours to complete, barring any emergencies.
• Construction activities will be dynamic as move from street to street abandoning the old main. The need for one-way flagging operations, lane/shoulder closures, and brief detours may be required.
• Cleanup of yards and paving should start after cuts and caps are completed.
Both D.E. Tarolli and OCWA would like to thank the residents for their patience during the construction phase. Please direct any questions to
