Garberville water will be turned off next week, be ready!
Here’s the GSD press release:

WATER SHUT OFF: TUESDAY, July 9, 2013 5:00 am to 11:00 a.m.
TRAFFIC DELAYS: Monday July 8 – 26, 2013

As part of the construction project for the new water treatment plant, a new water line will be installed in Sprowel Creek Road from the west side of the Hwy 101 overcrossing, through the bridge, to Redwood Drive. This new waterline will be tied into the existing waterline in the Redwood Drive/ Sprowel Creek Road intersection. Garberville Sanitary District (GSD) will be shutting off the water supply to the intersection so the construction contractor can install the new tie-in. The GSD crew will turn off the water at 5:00 am on Tuesday July 9, 2013 to minimize disruption to customers.

The District anticipates that the work will take no longer than 6 hours to complete.

The service areas affected on Tuesday the 9th will be:
• Redwood Dr – Allsport south to Sprowel Creek Road
• Redwood Dr – Humboldt Hunnies south to Rays Sentry Market
• All services on Sprowel Creek Road (including Rivercrest Riverview Lane, Sunnybank Lane, Leino Lane and Kimtu)

Traffic control and delays will be in effect on Sprowel Creek Road and Redwood Drive from the freeway overpass to Redwood Drive intersection for the next several weeks. Delays will be as minimal as possible. Vehicular access to businesses will be maintained as much as possible, except when the waterline trench is open in front of the driveway. Pedestrian access will be accommodated during the duration. Parking on Redwood Drive and walking into this two block area may be timelier than attempting to park in the business’ parking lots.

To avoid the Redwood Drive/Sprowel Creek Road intersection: coming into town from Sprowel Creek area, take the freeway on ramp to Benbow and come in to town from the south. If you are coming in from the south turn right onto Melville then left on Locust to access the north end of town. If you are coming into town from the north going to Ray’s Sentry Market you can turn on Conger Street, then right on Locust Street accessing Sentry from the rear entrance.

Customers and Businesses in the affected area are being notified on Wednesday July 3, 2013 of the shut-off and nature of the works taking place on Tuesday the 9th of July.

Garberville Sanitary District apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
