The Village will be flushing fire hydrants week of October 11-15. Flushing is done to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes. Your water is safe to drink. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears.
There will be a Street and Utility Committee meeting Thursday, October 7 at the Municipal Building meeting room to discuss projects.
The village of Mechanicsburg will have several streets resurfaced this week. Due to weather and Covid both projects, after cancellations, have converged and will begin Wednesday, September 29th early in the morning.
First project is Lynn, School and East Race St. This Micro surfacing will cause all three streets to be completely shut down. Process will require a curing time of 4-6 hours after application. While we realize that this will be an inconvenience for some we ask for your patience. Use the alleys to get as close to your residence as possible. Our Street Department has distributed flyers and posted no parking signs in the area.
Second project is on the west side of town. This is a chip/tar resurfacing project. There is no street parking in that area and will not cause as much disruption as the east side project. Once the tar is laid and the stone is down it can be immediately used. We ask that you use caution around the workers and equipment for your safety and theirs. There will be flaggers in that area.
Please be kind to all the workers and use caution in the work areas. We are short staffed due to illness and will do our very best to make sure this all goes smoothly.
