Water service is estimated to be restored by 5am on Tuesday, 8/23/2022. 


Additional information will be released in the event the planned outage area needs to be expanded or the duration needs extended.


Efforts to restore the roadways in the Decatur Heights area are expected to begin on 8/24/2022, depending on weather and construction progress next week.
