R&M Service Solutions, under contract with the City of Ormond Beach, will be working in conjunction with the Public Works - Water Distribution crews to replace certain aged fire hydrants beginning the week of July 18, 2011. Periodic water main shutdowns resulting in service disruptions to customers will be required to facilitate the fire hydrant replacements. Water main service disruptions are scheduled to occur in the morning between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday throughout the 120-day contract period within the applicable work zone. In an effort to minimize customer service disruptions resulting from this activity, water main outages will be planned to include replacement of multiple hydrants within certain localized areas as the existing water main configuration allows. The hydrant replacement activities described are necessary to improve the reliability and flow capabilities of the City of Ormond Beach fire protection system.
The attached map and hydrant listing depicts the location of the fire hydrants to be replaced during the contract period. Water distribution system staff will provide advance notices in writing to designated customers during the preceding week or 48 hours in advance for work locations proposed for the upcoming week. Appropriate precautionary water use measures will be described in the notices and remain in effect until such time appropriate main clearances are obtained.
During this period customers may also experience fluctuations in normal water pressure and/or color as a result of water main outages. This activity may also cause tap water in nearby homes and facilities to become temporarily cloudy. In such cases, impacted customers are suggested to allow their tap water to run for a few minutes until the water appears clear. Should a cloudy water condition continue to persist, the customer is requested to contact the City of Ormond Beach Public Works Department – Utilities Division at (386) 676-3220 for further assistance. Thank you.
Note: Unforeseen occurrences, inclement weather or other naturally occurring events may result in adjustments to contractor scheduled activities.
