Urgent Water Conservation Measures Feb 4th Due to Water Plant Upgrades

Passing along the message from the City’s Website.

For the construction of the City’s new Bainbridge Water Treatment Plant, a temporary water supply shut down is required for a large water main connection.

City crews need to cut into the main water supply pipe to the City and install a series of valves and fittings for the new plant.  The work will take place on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, from 9:00 AM to 11:30 PM. 

We are asking all residents to minimize water use during this crucial time. We will meet our minimum water needs and fire protection from our 5 water reservoirs.

The new Bainbridge Water Treatment Plant upgrade project will be completed Spring 2015.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your efforts to conserve water use during this critical time.

Thank you,

Brian Mousley
Utilities Superintendent
City of Port Alberni
