The Town of Amherst Public Works Department is notifying citizens of an emergency water main shut down on September 27, 2023.
The water main on West Street from Pomeroy Lane and the West Street pump station will be shut down due to emergency repairs. Surrounding areas that are fed by this line will be affected.
There are no water quality issues to be concerned about (i.e. boil order). When water service is resumed, there may be some discoloration due to debris or air in the system which can be resolved by running water for a period of time.
We have no time for the conclusion of these repairs as of time of this posting (10:30 am). Please monitor this news flash for updates.
