Water main break - SR 55 South

Update (4:30 pm 3/18/21):

The water main break repair is complete. Water service is restored. A boil order is issued to all Oxford water customers. Hydrants are being flushed, therefore some periods of low pressure or disruption in service may continue while that is performed. If you experience any rust, cloudy, or dark sediment in your water, please run your water for a few minutes until the water in the line runs clear. A boil order notice is attached. The boil order will continue at least three days. Updates will be made here, on Reach Alert, and on Channel 18.

Update (1:30 pm 3/18/21):

Repairs have begun. Water has been shut down just to a couple of services south of the break on SR 55. Service to the rest of the town will be disrupted when all of the water has been exhausted from the distribution lines, as all of the water has already been drained from the water tower. Water will be restored as soon as the repair is complete, but please know that a boil order will be issued for all Oxford water customers.

Oxford water main break notice (11:15 am 3/18/21):

There is a large break and the main line that services the water to town. Repairs will begin soon. Please reserve some water for emergency use. Water distribution service to all Oxford residences will be affected during the repair. Updates will be made here. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience; thank you for your understanding and cooperation while we work to make this repair. Please share.
