Original Notice - January 31, 2023 - Kidco Construction and Greater Vernon Water ADVANCE NOTICE TO RESIDENTS OF DISRUPTION TO WATER SERVICE
Location: The Rise
Please be advised that your water service may be shut off in the area on Tuesday, January 31, 2023 between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.
During this time period, there will be no water service to your property (see attached map). Please take the necessary measures to ensure that you have enough water for your household needs.
An event causing loss of water to customers can lead to depressurization of the distribution pipes increasing the risk of back siphonage. The RDNO is required to issue a Water Quality Advisory (WQA) to affected areas and complete water sampling to ensure the continued safety of the water system. The level of service and treatment provided by the RDNO has been maintained; however some customers may wish to boil their water for at least one minute when preparing any food, drinking, washing fruits & vegetables, making beverages or ice or when brushing teeth.
The WQA is in effect until sampling results confirm that the drinking water has returned to normal. While water service to customers is being restored, you may experience some turbidity, which is normal. Please run the cold water in your bathtub and other taps and appliances until the water runs clear.
Customers will be advised when the WQA is rescinded.
