[ARCHIVED] Temporary Water Shut-Off at Lake County Jail

As Lake County Facilities continues to modernize equipment at the Lake County Jail, there will be a preplanned shut-off of the water on April 26, 2022.  Contractors will shut the water off to the jail and the administrative side of the sheriff’s office in the morning.  Water is planned to be restored in the evening, the same day.  

This water shutoff is necessary to repair a leak in the water main.

During the 12-hour shut-off, inmates will be provided ample amounts of bottled drinking water.  Any inmate requesting extra water will be accommodated.  Arrangements are in place to ensure inmates have water for personal hygiene needs and for toilets to be flushed.  

The inconveniences created by the upgrade work result in a modernized jail facility, which will help ensure the safety of inmates and correctional officers.
