Water Department Cautioning of Water Main Breaks

The Oskaloosa Municipal Water Department wants to alert Oskaloosa residents of water main breaks within the city on December 27.

The first one crews are tackling is on C Avenue West between North C and North D Street. As a result of this work, the water department will have C Avenue West closed in both directions between North C and North D. Please find an alternate route if you need to travel in this area. Staff expect utility locates to clear and begin repairs after 10 AM.

The other leak is by 135 Geneva Drive. Staff will need to evaluate whether or not they will need to close Geneva from the frontage road along A Avenue East to 1st Avenue East in order to complete that repair. If the street does need to be closed, the water department will work to post notice on their Facebook page.

Due to the extreme cold the amount of time needed to complete the repairs may be longer than usual. We apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause those wanting to drive through these areas, but ask for your patience as staff work to fix the leaks and get the roads opened again.
