Due to mobilization requirements, full excavation and site works will begin at Stonegate Drive on Thursday, January 13 at 9:00 a.m. and all efforts will be made to restore water service as quickly as possible.  As this watermain break has impacted the road please do not drive on the road surface that has been cordoned off.

Bulk Water

As an emergency response the SLRD is providing these residents with access to the water supply from the hydrant located in front of 129 Stonegate Drive for toilet flushing or other uses.  Water quality is being monitored to ensure treatment levels remain acceptable.  A temporary filling valve is being made available to allow users to manually access water for emergency uses. 

To ensure your safety please keep the following in mind:

  • Water containers can become easily contaminated and should be protected from outside contamination. A small amount of regular unscented household chlorine bleach (1 teaspoon per 5 litre container) can be used to periodically sanitize the  containers before refilling for use. 
  • Please take care to not handle or contaminate the filling valve.
  • Please ensure the valve on the hydrant is fully closed after use.
  • Those with very weak immune systems may be at higher risk of water-borne infections and therefore should use boiled or bottled water.

We apologize for the interruption and impacts to affected residents and will provide further updates as repairs progress. 

8:30am January 12, 2022

There has been a watermain break at the top of Stonegate Drive in Furry Creek.  Due to this, water has been shut off in the local area.  The SLRD is investigating the repair to locate the source of the break, and at this time cannot predict how long it will be until water service is restored.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we will provide updates to our website as available. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ed Witwicki, SLRD Senior Utilities Supervisor at        (604) 894 6371 ext 227
