Work was planned to facilitate the lowering of water mains to install a large box culvert at Road 5 and Highway 97.
Water was scheduled to be turned off Thursday September 6th between 8:30am – 4:30pm for domestic water users. Affected addresses were notified with a door hangar that provided additional information.
Due to infrastructure problems with valves – additional water customers were shut off after 10:00am Thursday.
Those extra customers not notified about the shut off are located on Highway 97 (Road 5 to Road 4), Road 4 and Snowbrush Street.
The Town apologizes for any inconvenience to its customers, and hopes the water will be back on by 4:30 pm.
After water service is restored, air or discoloured water may be present in the piping. Running a garden hose or cold water bathtub faucet for several minutes, should eliminate both air and discoloured water problems.
If you have a specialized water filtration unit within your premise, it may need to be isolated to prevent any blockage which could result form this water outage
