Water service will be shut off to portions of Piney Ridge Village Tuesday morning for about two to three hours.

The Carroll County Bureau of Utilities will shut off the water service at about 9 a.m., according to a news release from county government, in order to replace a “faulty water valve” near the northern intersection of Tamarack Circle and Piney Ridge Drive.

Tuesday morning’s work will complete the remaining repair work that was discovered during the July 19 emergency repairs to the eight-inch diameter water main, according to the release.

Once service has been restored, residents may experience cloudy water lasting up to an hour, according to the release. Residents can turn the cold water tap on and run water for several minutes to clear the lines, according to the release.

The county recommends that residents don’t use high water volume appliances like washing machines, dishwashers, etc., during periods of cloudy water or low pressure, according to the release.

Anyone with questions regarding the emergency repair can call the Bureau of Utilities office at 410-386-2164.
