FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOWN OF JAY- During construction on the Grove Road Bridge, a water main was inadvertently struck during digging by a contractor doing work on the bridge. This break caused low water pressure throughout some areas of the Au Sable Forks Water District. The Town of Jay DPW has repaired the break and water is back on. The Department of Health has been notified and because the water was restored under the required time limit there is no boil water order necessary.
