City Water Dept personnel are in the process of filling/venting/flushing the line after which we will place it back in service. We anticipate being back to normal system pressures sometime this evening.

October 24 Update   Repair activities planned for today are postponed until tomorrow October 25 due to difficulties in isolating and draining the targeted section of transmission main on Willowbrook Road. We believe we have identified the problem and will try again with the same plan tomorrow. Shutdown activities will commence around midnight tonight.   Based on today’s experience, we anticipate minimal to significant pressure drop to occur in the system throughout the west side of the City and Hanover Twp – LC. Pressures to LVIP III, Airport, and Motel Drive will be maintained via temporary pumping.   It is anticipated that the work will be completed in one day after which water pressure will be restored to normal.   With this type of change to the system, there is the possibility that discolored or cloudy water may occur. Normal procedures for handling discolored water calls will be followed.   Edward J. Boscola, PE Director – Water and Sewer Resources City of Bethlehem 10 East Church Street Bethlehem, PA 18018 Office: 610-865-7207 Cell:...
