Emergency Water Line Repair

November 04, 2020


Residents of Fairlee - Bay Shore Spur Rd, Bay Shore Rd, and up to 21661 Bay Shore Rd.


While making a repair to a water line in the Fairlee area we will be shutting off water to the Bay Shore Road area. We will do our best to restore service in a timely manner and appreciate your patience as we make the necessary repair.


Once the water is restored, we ask that you please flush all toilets and run all faucets for at least five minutes before using them. It would be advised to clean the aerator filter in the faucets after running the water. Also, we would advise you to run your washing machines through an “empty” cycle and then clean the filter as well. While this repair may cause some inconvenience, it will help to maintain the high quality of your service.



In advance, the Kent County Division of Water and Wastewater appreciates your cooperation and patience. If you should have any questions regarding this repair, please contact our office at 410-778-3287 during normal business hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
