Reminder: Water Leak Repair in Kenton Could Lead to Citywide Shutdown

Posted on April 24, 2020

The city of Kenton will be repairing a water leak at the corner of Main and Franklin Streets. 


According to a release, the repair is scheduled to be made Saturday (April 25) evening. 


Work will begin at 6 tomorrow evening. 


Once the site is open, the repair may be able to be made while the system is under pressure. 


If water is required to be turned off, it would be a citywide shutdown. 


IF water is shut off, it is estimated that it would be back on by 8 am Sunday, April 26th. 


At that time, a boil water advisory would be in effect. 


The city considered waiting until the COVID-19 stay-at-home order was lifted but decided that doing it now would have the least impact on area businesses and organizations.
