Notice: Water Shutdown on 9th Avenue North⁣

UPDATE: May 19, 2022:

For various reasons the first scheduled shutdown was delayed by a day and therefore occurred last night.  The second (and last) shutdown is therefore rescheduled to occur tonight.

Second Shutdown – Tonight: starting Friday, May 20 at 12 a.m. (midnight)

  • The outage is expected to last up to 8 hours overnight starting at midnight.
  • The intersection at 7th St N and 9th Ave N intersection (adjacent to IGA) will be closed during the shutdown.

May 17, 2022:

Please be advised that there will be two extended water shutdowns this week as part of the 9th Ave. N Downtown Street Renewal project. The water shutdown will impact residents and businesses in the area from the Post Office to the CP Bunkhouse between the Kicking Horse River and Highway 95 (see highlighted area on the map below). The remainder of the community will not be affected by the shut-downs.⁣ ⁣

First Shutdown: Tonight, Wednesday, May 18 at 12 a.m. (midnight)⁣

  • The outage is expected to last up to 6 hours overnight starting at midnight on Wednesday, May 18.⁣
  • The intersection at 6th St N and 9th Ave N intersection (adjacent to Ford) will be closed during the shutdown.⁣ ⁣

Second Shutdown: Thursday, May 19 at 12 a.m. (midnight)⁣ •

  • The outage is expected to last up to 8 hours overnight starting at midnight on Thursday, May 19.⁣
  • The intersection at 7th St N and 9th Ave N intersection (adjacent to IGA) will be closed during the shutdown.⁣ ⁣

Keeping in mind that the water shutdowns will be taking place overnight, here are some tips to prepare for a water outage:⁣

  • Fill pots on the stove with water for cooking. ⁣
  • Fill potable water containers for drinking.⁣ 
  • If you think you’ll need to flush the toilet overnight, fill the bathtub with water and use a bucket to flush.⁣
  • During a water outage, try not to operate the water faucets. This will prevent air from entering your plumbing.⁣ ⁣
