Some of you may be noticing a blue flag in your yard labeled “IGH WATER.” The Utility Department has started a project locating and operating all water shut off valves on residential property.
We will be out and about this spring going through each neighborhood. One group will be coming through locating these shut offs, flagging them and digging them up if they are deep down. Then a follow-up crew will come in and raise them up to grade and make sure they are operable. We are doing this to ensure that we can quickly turn the water off to the home in the case of an emergency (e.g. The water pipe in your home breaks and we need to turn it off quickly at the street).
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 651-450-4309.
