Cranbrook, BC (January 26, 2021) – A break in the water main that feeds the Wildstone and River’s Crossing (former Shadow Mountain) areas is scheduled to be repaired February 2.
Residents to be impacted by this work are asked to please keep a supply of water available in your homes to allow for drinking, cooking, doing dishes, and flushing toilets for at least one day.
Water service will be shut down Tuesday February 2 at 8:00am and is expected to be off most of the day. Every effort will be made to restore water service as quickly as possible. Once service is restored, residents are asked to run their cold water taps for 15 minutes or longer if the water is not clear.
The repair work to the watermain will be happening in the entrance roadway to the Wildstone development. Due to the nature of the work, it will not be possible to allow vehicle traffic through the construction zone. A temporary detour for residents to access their homes in Wildstone, will be in place along Collinson Road, which will be single lane alternating traffic with traffic control personnel and signage on site. The detour is subject to a vehicle weight restriction of 4000kg. Any vehicles over this weight will be denied access through the detour route.
Those living in these areas that need to get their children to school or be to work, are encouraged to leave for the day before 8:00 am. Otherwise, they will need to use the detour and there may be some minor delay with the route being single lane alternating.
The City asks for patience and understanding as this important repair is completed. Please keep clear of the project site to allow our staff and equipment to work safely.
