Update 8:50am January 14, 2022

There is a possible break in the high pressure main. We are doing what we can but there is going to be low or no water. The areas that will be affect most are at the top of Sakwi, Edelweiss and Snowflake till further notice or at least until after the weekend. This is dependent on the availability of parts and issues found.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this issue.

Update 4:30pm January 13, 2022

Please note the water pressure could take up to 4 hours to be back to normal. The more you refrain from checking the water pressure the sooner it will be back to normal.

The water has been repaired and we are re-pressurizing the line.

Update 11:30am January 13 2022

We are in the midst of an emergency water Main repair. Upper Edelweiss and some of upper Sakwi will be experiencing loss of pressure. There is a good possibility the mountains water will need to be completely shut down by noon today to address this issue.

We will post on the website with any updates.

Thank you for your understanding and patience with this matter.

Water Outage

So tomorrow upper Edelweiss will have a water shutdown. We will be reassessing in the am . Until then Edelweiss will be closed to all none essential traffic effective immediately. This is due to a large ice build up and possibility of aggravating the situation into a rupture.

We will keep everyone updated when we know more.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.
