MOUNT VERNON — About a five- or six-block area north of West High Street, between Norton Street and North Main Street, will be without water for a while Monday night, Mayor Richard Mavis reported. The area affected is mostly commercial buildings, but does include The Living Center.
Mavis explained that over the years, a fire hydrant near the intersection of Sandusky and Chestnut was moved several times, each time extending a connection to a water main until the last move, when it was connected to a different main. The extension from those earlier moves has to be removed to make way for the storm sewer work being done as part of the Sandusky-Chestnut intersection improvement project.
Mavis said the work will begin and the water be shut off at 10 p.m. on Monday night. He said the work is scheduled to be completed by 6 a.m. Tuesday and may well be done earlier.
