Land Development Project Affects Water Supply in City’s Northeast
For immediate release: June 27, 2016
Public Works and Saskatoon Water have been dealing with an urgent situation in the city’s northeast.
A contractor working on a private land development punctured a 42” Primary Water Main which resulted in significant depressurization in the neighbourhoods on the east side of the river, north of College Drive and east of Central Ave.
West side neighbourhoods are not affected.
The break was isolated at 1:15 p.m. and water service and pressure is currently returning to normal. In the meantime, and as safeguard, a Drinking Water Advisory is in effect for the above mentioned areas.
Right now, City staff are checking the system and conducting water quality tests. In addition, Saskatoon Water is performing computer modelling to determine the extent of the area affected.
NotifyNow will be used to advise affected customers and citizens of the DWA and where to find further information.
