Water Main Break (St. Michael)

IMPORTANT: There is a water main break at the St. Michael water system. WATER is now SHUT OFF. Residents impacted should take steps to conserve water immediately. Repairs are in progress, but there is no estimated time for completion at this time. There will likely be a boil advisory at that time. Thank you for your patience as this is fixed.
