Route 11 Water main

Area between Taft Road and Bailey Road



December 28, 2015

Dear Customer:

Please be advised that OCWA is currently monitoring a water main break on Route 11.  In order to repair the leak, located between Taft Road and Bailey Road, the water main on Route 11 will have to be shut off.

At present it is our intention to monitor the leak throughout the remainder of the day and begin the shutdown of the main at 10 p.m. tonight.

It should be noted that, given the location of the leak and the high volume of traffic on Route 11, should the main break worsen and in turn create a public safety hazard the repair schedule would be abandoned and the repair would begin earlier.  Should this be the case we might not be able to provide advanced notice.

With respect to the length of the shutdown, until the site has been excavated it is difficult to estimate the down time, however our maintenance personnel always use every measure to restore service as promptly as possible.

We assure you we will do all we can to expedite the repairs and we apologize in advance for the inconvenience.


Michael E. Hooker

Executive Director
