FAQs

1.) Will new water mains in my area affect the quality of my water?

There may be temporary instances of discolored water during or just after construction activities, usually because of disturbances in water flow, but the water is still safe for all uses. You can run the water at an outside faucet for several minutes to help flush the lines.

2.) Will my water bill go up because new water mains are installed?

No. The construction costs for Water Main Replacement projects are included in the Water System’s Capital Improvement Program and are funded through revenues based on the existing rate structure.

3.) Will the service line to my house be replaced as part of a construction project?

No. The County’s water distribution system ends on the customer’s side of the water meter. All components of the water supply to a home from this point (the water meter) are the sole responsibility of the homeowner.
