PENTICTON - The city is making headway in its efforts to clean up a city intersection following heavy rain on Saturday.

Clean up efforts along Columbia Street at Duncan Avenue have been progressing since the storm water system in the area became blocked with silt and mud coming from Carmi Road, east of the city’s boundary, on Saturday, April 7.

City Public Works Manager Len Robson says he expects the storm sewer will be back in service later today.

The city will review the source and cause of the blockage in hopes of finding a long term solution to the issue.
