ITHACA, N.Y.—Installation of a new water tee and valve within the Town of Ithaca’s West Hill tank grid is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 31 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Water pressure for certain customers may be affected as work progresses, particularly for residents on Oakwood Lane, Brookfield Road, Hector Street, Westwood Knoll, Sunrise Road and Warren and Richard Places, and the highest priority will be to maintain water service to Cayuga Medical Center.
