Cranbrook, BC (August 3, 2017) – Water main tie in work is set to close a portion of 30th Avenue North between Mount Royal Drive and Mount Fisher Drive Friday morning.
With the tie in work, residents in the area will notice a short reduction in their water pressure beginning late this morning, while the construction is done. Work on this project started on Thursday, but the contractor needs some extra time to complete the work Friday.
Some customers may experience discolouration in the water for a short period once the water service is restored. If you do have discolouration, please run your cold water tap until the water runs clear. This discolouration is not a public health concern.
This temporary closure will also affect BC Transit Route #1 Tamarack, however the service will be able to detour around the construction work.
The City of Cranbrook apologizes for any inconvenience this issue may cause and staff is working as quickly as possible to restore water service and road access.
