Water will be shut off to about 200 homes and businesses in part of Sylvania Township for four hours today and Tuesday, and a boil-water advisory will be in effect four about four days afterward, the Lucas County Sanitary Engineer's Office announced.
The water shutoff will affect customers north of Central Avenue near Holland-Sylvania Road and is needed to isolate a water main for repairs, County Engineer James P. Shaw III said in a statement.
Preparatory work will start during the day, and water will be shut off at 10 p.m. for an estimated four hours, weather permitting.
Afterward, affected customers are advised that until 10 a.m. Friday they should boil water intended for drinking or cooking, unless further notified.
Water quality testing will be conducted after the water main repairs.
Door hangers have been distributed to customers affected by the work, which will be done at night to minimize its impact, Mr. Shaw said.
