Portions of Seneca Avenue and Stanhope Street in Ridgewood (outlined in red) will be affected by a water main shutoff on Sunday, Aug. 19.

The Department of Design and Construction (DDC) is warning residents on a Ridgewood block that the water will be shut off this coming Sunday.

According to an advisory released by the DDC, a water main project on Onderdonk Avenue will cause the water to be shut off for approximately eight hours on Aug. 19 beginning at 8 a.m. The affected areas will include Seneca Avenue between Stanhope Street and DeKalb Avenue as well as Stockholm Street between Seneca Avenue and Cypress Avenue.

A source from Community Board 5 who is familiar with the project explained that the contractor for the project has to do the work on Sunday because it is the only day of the week that Atlantic Dialysis Management on the corner of Seneca Avenue and Stanhope Street is closed. The contractor is not permitted to shut the water main while the dialysis treatment center is open.

The contractor will also be distributing flyers in the affected area during the next few days.

The DDC recommends that residents in the affected area shut off the water main valves in their homes in order to avoid problems that may occur when sediment enters or is released from the plumbing. It is also recommended that all water-cooled appliances be turned off, which may include air conditioners.

Once the water service is returned, the DDC recommends turning the main valve back on and flushing the system by running faucets to sinks and tubs for 15 to 30 minutes.
