Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Mohawk Valley Water Authority will begin conducting routine system maintenance tomorrow between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The affected areas will be Whitesboro and Erie Streets near the borders of the Village of Yorkville and Utica. Officials say the job may cause some water discoloration and low pressure, however, no boil water advisory is being issued with the work slated to begin tomorrow.

Mike Ryan, Director of Distribution for the Authority said, “Starting tomorrow morning we will be performing a ‘shut down’ of the mains along the Erie Street transmission mains. There’s local distribution there and then there’s also the larger transmission mains, which we are testing.” He says the job is to continue work on a capital project that was started last November, to replace some large diameter valves. He says the aim is to reduce the number of people who will be out of service during the repairs.

Addition information can be found by calling (315) 792-0301 ext. 1, or by visiting,, and clicking on “Water Advisory.”
