Brainard Road Water Main Update 11/26/13
Construction of the Brainard Road water main is now completed and operational from Emery Road to Harvard Road.
Two-way traffic will be restored prior to the end of the day on Wednesday November 27th. Please note that there is no white edge line for the northbound lane as well as the eastbound lane on Harvard. This will be installed if weather permits.
Construction of the main between Miles Road and Emery road will continue for the next four weeks.
Beginning the week of December 2nd northbound traffic on Brainard Road will be detoured between Miles Road and Hidden Valley Drive.
A portion of the northbound lane will be removed as part of the water main installation. Traffic will be detoured along Miles Road to Lander Road and up to Emery Road. The detour for this area will last about three weeks, weather permitting. Two-way traffic will remain from Hidden Valley to Harvard Road.
The water main installation is tentatively scheduled to be completed by Friday December 20th weather permitting.
Residents should note that final restoration will not be completed until the spring. All driveway pavements disturbed will be capped with a temporary pavement for the winter months. The contractor will return in the early spring to complete the driveway replacement and final lawn restorations.
If you have any questions please contact the Village Engineer, Mr. Brian Mader at 216-731-6255.

Water Meter Upgrades
Cleveland Water’s Clear Reads Project is coming to Orange Village in October. Clear Reads is Cleveland Water’s Project to install automated meter reading (AMR) technology throughout its service area. Cleveland Water’s Clear Reads Project delivers better customer service by providing accurate bills based on actual consumption, access to water usage information, and overall improved efficiency.
Since your water meter is most likely located inside your home, you will need to schedule an appointment for your installation. When it is time to schedule your appointment, you will receive a letter from the Clear Reads Project with all the relevant details. Evening and weekend appointments are available. When you schedule your appointment, the Clear Reads installation team will give you a two hour window, and the actual installation takes about one hour to complete.
For more information about Cleveland Water’s Clear Reads Project, visit www.clevelandwater.com
News and information regarding the possible community merger is available on the county web site and our web site.
