Water Outages Expected Wednesday Morning for Parts of Downtown Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on August 30, 2016

Construction in downtown Ottawa may mean you won’t have water Wednesday if you live near Madison Street.

The city will install a new water main and hook-ups on West Madison Street Wednesday. As a result, they’ll be turning off water service in the morning. You’ll be affected if you live on the 600 or 700 blocks of Clinton, Madison Street from Clinton west to Walnut as well as the south 200 block, and the 700 block of Canal Street.

Water service should be back on by the end of the day, according to the city. When the water is turned back on, those houses will be under a boil order until the Water Department can finish tests, which usually takes 24 to 48 hours.

Also, because of the shut off, City Hall will also be closed Wednesday.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
