Keep your bottled water handy.
Water service has been interrupted on several northern Bayside streets as the Department of Design and Construction (DDC) replaces a local water main.
The service interruptions began on Jan. 8 and will continue until construction ends on Jan. 22.
Streets which will likely be affected are Fort Totten Avenue between Bell Boulevard and Fort Totten Park; Bell Boulevard between 208th Place and 14th Avenue; Bell Boulevard between 209th Street and 15th Avenue; and 212th Street between Bell Boulevard and 15th Avenue.
Service may be affected from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Homeowners in the area are advised to shut off their water valves during this time in order to avoid sediment entering the building’s system.
In an emailed statement, a representative from the DDC said the agency aims to provide resilient and sustainable civic services and that the replacement will provide the community with efficient water services.
“The [DDC] is working closely with local businesses and our stakeholders in order to be good neighbors in those communities experiencing our construction activities,” read the statement.
