Denville Township was scheduled to turn on the water main today in preparation for our pipeline opening. However, due to unexpected freezing temperatures overnight and predicted low nighttime temperatures later this week, Denville has rescheduled turning on the service until next week. I realize this may be disruptive to plans for moving in this weekend, but we must be cautious when it comes to our above ground pipeline. For those that are not in the area, we actually had an inch of snow this past Saturday.
Assuming the weather cooperates, Denville will be turning on the water supply Tue or Wed next week. If any of the Pipeline team members are available on Fri, 4/20, I would like tackle our repairs starting at 9AM and hopefully get the entire system opened that day.
I appreciate everyone’s flexibility and understanding and I look forward to getting water flowing as soon as possible.
The water will be shut off on Saturday, October 28th at 10AM. I’ll be reaching out to our usual group of dedicated volunteers in a few weeks to confirm the meet up. The water will be turned back on Saturday, April 14th, 2018.
For the website, there is a new addition on the History page. Many of you have a printed copy of Estling Lake – Then and Now, published by Doris Edwards, and it is now available on our web site in PDF form. I’ll be working on many updates to the History page over the off season, as I have found a great collection of Estling Lake documents and memorabilia from my grandmother, Nancy Saulter. Feel free to reach out if you have other items from our Estling history that would be interesting to share.
Denville DPW has notified me that they will be working on the fire hydrant (our source of water) on Monday, May 4th.
As such, there will be no water to Estling starting at 8am on Monday. They expect to be working for 6-8 hours and we will not have water during this time period.
They will post notices on each camp with instructions for water usage post work.
