Emergency Water Disruption Notice- Wednesday, July 6

July 6, 2022

Emergency Water Disruption

Areas Affected: Conception Bay Highway (West of O’Connell’s Well including Ridge Road and all By-Roads), Country Path, The Holyrood Marina, Salmonier Line (South of Centennial Softball Field), Sir Albert Walsh Drive, Woodford’s Station,
Timeline: 1:30pm-4:30pm

In association with the on-going water ban, Town Staff are working to determine the cause of a significant loss of water within the town. This may be the result of higher demand or a leak. Over the next several days, residents may experience water disruptions as staff work to detect the leak.

Residents west of O’Connell’s well along Conception Bay Highway, including Ridge Road and all by roads, will be taken off the main water trunk system from the tank on Salmonier Line between 1:30pm-4:30pm. During this time, residents and businesses will have water from O’Connell’s well, but may experience lower pressure. As the usage increases, you may experience a water outage.

Residents and businesses on Woodfood’s Station will be taken off the main water trunk system from the tank on Salmonier Line between 1:30pm-4:30pm. This area will receive their water from Healey’s Well and Quinlan’s well. As the usage increases, residents and businesses will lose pressure and may experience a water outage.

All residents and businesses on Country Path, Sir Albert Walsh Drive, The Holyrood Marina and Salmonier Line (South of Centennial Ball Field) will experience a water outage between 1:30pm-4:30pm.

After water restoration, residents may experience air in their lines or discoloured water. We recommend that you run your water 1-2 minutes until the air is dispersed or water colour has cleared.

Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue and we apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.
