Construction work on Staples leaves homes without water

Posted at 6:55 PM, Jul 02, 2018

Construction continues to be a nuisance, especially for people who live on Rosedale Dr. near Staples St. Construction workers will be connecting water lines overnight, leaving about 30 homes without water.

The city sent fliers about the activity last week. Water will be shut down between 8 p.m. Monday and 5 a.m. Tuesday.

While some neighbors prepared by collecting water to cook, bathe and for restrooms, others say it will be a great inconvenience.

“As a person that works at the Marina on sailboats, one tends to get salty and hot and you wanna come home and have a nice shower. Not come home and turn on the water and it’s gone,” says Russell Peterek.

The Peerless Cleaners on the corner of Rosedale and Staples Street taped the notice to their door last week to let patrons know that water would be shut off at 8 p.m. as noted in the flyer.

The city says the water will most likely be turned off after 10 p.m. and should be back on after 5 a.m. Tuesday morning.
