Update 2:30 pm (Jan 26, 2024) - Water repairs on the Lansdowne water main are completed and water has been restored to the area. The boil water advisory put in place yesterday in an abundance of caution remains in effect and will be in place until such time that water quality testing confirms the water quality meets or exceeds Interior Health quality standards. 

Update 7:20 am (Jan 26, 2024) - Crews were able to reopen Lansdowne Rd and temporarily restore water service at approximately 10:45 pm Jan 25; however some leaks remain and crews will be back on site to continue repairs at 8 am Jan 26 (Friday). Water will have to be shut off to facilitate these repairs to the aging infrastructure. Thank you for your understanding. Crews are working as quickly as possible to resolve this situation. 

A water main leak has been detected in the Lansdowne Water Area Service. Crews are on site actively working on the situation. While crews are working in the area residents may notice pressure changes with your water and an emergency water shut off will be required to fully repair the situation. At this time we do not know how long the water will remain off but crews will work to restore service as soon as possible. 

Residents are advised to:

  • shut off hot and cold faucets and any equipment that requires water,
  • store sufficient drinking water for the anticipated period of interruption,
  •  isolate the supply to your hot water tank,
  • fill a bathtub or other large container with water to use for toilet flushing.

After completion of the repair to the watermain, the system will be flushed which may cause visual changes to your water, such as discolouration, which generally lasts no more than 30 minutes with regular household usage. If you wish, customers can run a cold water tap until the water runs clear which generally takes about 5 minutes of continuous flow. Please note this is an aesthetic change only and the water remains safe to use.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
