Notice to Greater Vernon Water Utility Customers - Temporary Water Main Shut-Off

Posted Friday, April 7, 2017

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) wishes to inform Greater Vernon Water customers located on:

 - Bodwell Road  - McLeish Road  - Robin Road
 - Galiano Road   - Pheasant Road  - Sparrow Road, and
 - Grouse Road   - Phillips Road    - Welker Road

that on April 12, 2017, water service will be shut-off to these properties so that a connection may be installed on McLeish Road and a valve replaced on Phillips Road. 

The shut-off period is expected to be between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., but may be longer if the contractor runs into unforeseen complications that require more time.  It is suggested that a short term water supply be stored before the interruption for use while the water is off.

Water quality may be affected for a period after the water is turned back on.  During this time you may choose to not drink the water until it clears.  If poor quality water is received, running an outside tap for a while will help clear the water faster.  Checking your water before doing laundry is strongly advised. 

Please be considerate of crews working in these areas and drive carefully.
