Customers of two Regional District water systems will not have water for most of the day on Wednesday, October 30th.
Environmental Services staff will be inspecting, cleaning and doing maintenance on the reservoirs that service the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water systems in the north Westside Road area of the Regional District. This work requires staff to shut off the water to customers.
On the 30th starting at 7:00 am until approximately 1:00 pm, 250 properties that are connected to the community water system in Westshore Estates will be without water.
Customers of the Killiney Beach system that services over 280 properties will not have water from approximately 12:00 noon until 6:00 pm on the 30th as staff work on reservoir maintenance and inspection.
The Regional District’s Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “Customers should avoid using any water during the period that the scheduled work is taking place on their system. Once the work is complete on a system, we’ll send out notices to water system subscribers of our online e-notification program, advising when water service has been restored and whether any further outage will be required. Customers should check their water prior to use. If they experience any discoloration, they should run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.”
