The contractor will be commencing work within the Colony this Monday, July 25th. The water main will be relocated in front of 50 Colony. In order to perform this work, Colony Road in front of 50 thru 52 Colony will be closed, requiring entry/exit of the entire community by using Ocean Drive only. This closure is anticipated to take one day.  The Village of Tequesta will be placing door hangers at 50, 51 and 52 Colony this afternoon advising owners of the upcoming work which requires the water main to be shut off in front of these homes and the need to have a boil water notice in place for these locations until such time a clearance is given, typically two (2) days. They will be advised by the Village when the boil water notice is lifted.  The road will be closed between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and will reopen before 6 p.m. the same day.  Click on the update link above to be taken to the project website for a full update.
