Maintenance on a damaged fire hydrant near Midway Road and Yates Street has been postponed until Wednesday, June 20, due to inclement weather, according to the Richmond County Water Department.
Residents in the areas of Midway Road, Yates Street, and some side streets off of these roads are likely to experience water outages next Wednesday as a result of the department cutting the water off for most of the day.
Services will not be turned off any earlier than 8 a.m.
According to the water department, residents are suggested to fill a bathtub in order to provide water during the time services are cut off. To avoid the possibility of a damaged hot water heater, residents are suggested to turn off the hot water heater circuit breaker in their electrical entrance until water services have been restored.
If the entrance panel uses fuses, simply remove the fuse.
