Month: December 2023



Beginning today, Tuesday, December 19, around 3:30 p.m., water service will be interrupted to customers along Iles Avenue between S. MacArthur Boulevard and S. Owens Lane due to water main break repairs. Service is estimated to be restored by 10 p.m. tonight barring no unforeseen issues.

Iles Avenue may be closed to traffic in both directions during the work. Lanes will remain closed after repairs until road surface work is completed. Motorists should plan for alternative routes and slow down and be aware of the construction and repair crews and equipment in and near roadways.
