– EFFECTIVE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2024 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm -

Residents connected to the Hankey Local Area Service are advised of a planned water shutoff on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 to repair a watermain leak.

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.
