The Town of Front Royal Department of Environmental Services will close W. 18th St from N Royal Ave to N Shenandoah Ave. on Thursday, August 11, from 9 AM to 2 PM for water and sewer line maintenance. Expect some travel delays in the area.
Due to the work water service will be off periodically throughout the day in the area of W. 18th St, Royal Ave, W. 17th St, and W. 19th St.
The water outage could cause some temporary discoloration of the drinking water; however the water is safe to drink. To clear the water, a cold tap should be turned on and allowed to run until it clears. The discolored water could create issue with laundry, so check the water flowing into washing machines for discoloration before running it for laundry.
Questions should be directed to the town Department of Environmental Services at 540-636-6338.
