WATER RESTRICTION – JULY 27, 2022

WATER RESTRICTION IN EFFECT FOR HEMLOCK VALLEY EFFECTIVE JULY 27, 2022

Until further notice, the following water uses are prohibited:

  3. Washing vehicles or building exteriors by pressure washer or hose.

There are many ways to conserve water:

  • Taking short showers and install water saver heads
  • Turn off tap when brushing teeth or shaving
  • Use a timer on taps. This will ensure taps are not left running accidentally
  • Only water when plants need moisture or stick to watering times early in the morning or later in the evening
  • Check your property for any leaks and dripping taps, and make sure all taps are properly turned off.

On behalf of the Hemlock Valley Utilities Team – Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

WATER ADVISORY – Sakwi Creek Road

Please be advised that the Hemlock Valley Utilities Team responded to Sakwi Creek Road for an emergency repair to a water main break. The repair required a brief interruption to service however water has since been restored. Residents living on Sakwi may notice a slight discoloration in their water, if so you should run your taps for up to 15 minutes until water begins to run clear again.

Again, the interruption in service affects properties on Sakwi Creek Road only.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,

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.

The Hemlock Utilities Team

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.
