On Thursday, April 26th, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., the Portsmouth Water Department will be shutting off the water main on Islington Street spanning the Route 1 Bypass to Essex Avenue, as well as Barberry Lane and Foch Avenue. The purpose of this shut down is to allow a crew from Lyman Construction to replace and relocate the hydrant at 1200 Islington Street.
When the water mains are turned back on, there may be air or some discoloration. Affected residents should run their water cold for a few minutes and is should clear; there is no danger associated with this color.
If water does not clear, please call 427-1530.
