Update- Residents West of O’Connell’s Well
October 13, 2014
As a follow up to Towns message of this morning, please be advised that the electronic motherboard for O’Connells Well cannot be purchased on mainland until tomorrow (Tuesday) and replacement will possibly be late Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
On Tuesday, residents west of O’Connell’s may find fluctuations in their water pressure and capacity, especially at peak demands, and that depends on the water height in tank. Throughout today, staff maintained the tank between 95 to 98 per cent and as long as that happens disruption in water will be minimum.
Staff have been at the well for most of today making certain that the booster pumps located in O’Connell’s well continues to keep the tank water pressured to meet the demands west of O’Connell’s.
Staff will be at the well early tomorrow and continue to monitor throughout the day.
The Town apologizes for this inconvenience and asks for your cooperation as staff work to get O’Connells back on the system.
