Water line testing

scheduled today

STEUBENVILLE — Crews will be testing an isolation sequence to shut off water to Market Street and Commercial Alley this evening, information crucial to developing a replacement plan for a leaking 12-inch valve in that area.

The work will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday and potentially affect the 100 block of North 4th St., the 100 block of North 5th St., the 400 block of Washington and the 400 block of Market streets.

It’s all part of the city’s Phase I and Phase II valve and waterline replacement project.

Water Superintendent Jim Jenkins said it’s a complex project, and residents could experience water quality issues, including loss of water, low pressure and discoloration. Those experiencing any of those conditions should report it to the water filtration plant at (740) 283.6041.
