Corix will be working in the Corra Linn subdivision over the next few weeks so there will be water outages at times. Today they found another broken valve so had to shut the water main off (from the park down to the highway). The water pipes in Corra Linn are minimal quality and so we expect there could be more problems. We have already found several broken pipes / valves which unfortunately requires shutting down the main line. While we hope interruptions will be kept to a minimum, we have no choice but to fix broken pipes or bad valves. Anyone home during the day might find it helpful to put some water aside for when the water is turned off.

Corix has now placed 52 meters which are reading and working well. While we have found some faulty curb stops, there have been no significant leaks found in our system. All faulty curb stops are being replaced with new valves, stems and bury boxes. B.I.D. infrastructure is sound and working well. This is the first year in decades that B.I.D. has been able to operate within our water license. After our one May mishap of drawing down the entire system, we were using just under maximum licensed water this summer. The system has easily kept up with this year’s use. We are now using about 40,000 gallons a day and expect this to drop slightly for winter use. As Corix will continue the project, users should expect short interruptions in water service as services are turned off and on during pit installs. Whitelock Road users put up with a number of lengthy interruptions due to install failures and we would like to thank them for their patience and perseverance. Corix will be running two crews to try and finish up the project, so we are now hoping for a long fall and late snow.
