Public Notice Bralorne Water System
Flushing of water system – in response to pump failure earlier this week
Wednesday, June 7th 2017 - BETWEEN 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM
The failure of the water pump caused the reservoir and the distribution pipes to empty. The refilling of the pipes caused loosening of the hard water scaling on the interior of the pipes as well as stirring up any sediment that was inside the pipes. To bring the water quality back up to par, staff will be flushing the water system this afternoon and early evening.
DISRUPTIONS TO WATER SERVICE ARE EXPECTED TO BE MINIMAL
You may experience some of the following in a very limited capacity:
- Water pressure may be temporarily reduced.
- You may experience discoloration of water and some sediment. If so, run water up to five to ten minutes - this should clear it up.
- Refrain from using a washing machine during this time.
- There may be temporary water interruptions.
