Re: Water service interruption

E Mansfield St Business Owners and Residents,

Water service for business and home owners located on E Mansfield St, east of Wayne Ave, will be disrupted this Sunday night, June 6, 2021. In order to minimize the inconvenience, the Water Distribution Department will be working through the night to relocate a portion of the waterline on E Mansfield St. Water will be shutoff at 10:00pm on Sunday night with service being anticipated to be restored on Monday, June 7, 2021 by 7:00am. It will be necessary to boil your water for a period of 24-48 hours following the disruption in service. Please reference WBCO/WQEL, the Bucyrus Telegraph Forum, or the City Facebook page for notification of when the boil advisory has been lifted. If you are unable to verify the conclusion of the boil advisory through the former sources please contact the Utility Office Manager Mike Kalb at 419-562-6767 ext 241 or the Water Treatment Plant at 419-562-7951 for a status update. If you have any questions feel free to contact Service-Safety Director Jeff Wagner at 419-562-6767 ext 223 or Water Distribution Foreman John Ernsberger at 419-834-5760.

    Control mosquitoes outside your home

    • Remove standing water where mosquitoes could lay eggs
    • Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out any items that hold water like tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpot saucers, or trash containers. Mosquitoes lay eggs near water.
    • Tightly cover water storage containers (buckets, cisterns, rain barrels) so that mosquitoes cannot get inside to lay eggs.
    • For containers without lids, use wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.
    • Use larvicides to treat large containers of water that will not be used for drinking and cannot be covered or dumped out.
    • If you have a septic tank, repair cracks or gaps. Cover open vent or plumbing pipes. Use wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.

    Kill mosquitoes outside your home

    • Use an outdoor insect spray made to kill mosquitoes in areas where they rest.
    • Mosquitoes rest in dark, humid areas like under patio furniture, or under the carport or garage. When using insecticides, always follow label instructions.

    Control mosquitoes inside your home

    • Keep mosquitoes out
      Install or repair and use window and door screens. Do not leave doors propped open.
    • Use air conditioning when possible.

    Kill mosquitoes inside your home

    • Use an indoor insect fogger or indoor insect spray to kill mosquitoes and treat areas where they rest. These products work immediately, and may need to be reapplied. When using insecticides, always follow label directions. Only using insecticide will not keep your home free of mosquitoes.
    • Mosquitoes rest in dark, humid places like under the sink, in closets, under furniture, or in the laundry room.
