Weekly water use update
Although we are happy to see the recent rain, it is only the second week of July and the long term weather forecast continues to be for a hot and dry summer. In an effort to avoid or delay, as long as possible, the implementation of Stage 4 (severe) water conservation regulations, we will remain at Stage 3 (acute) for now. The SCRD would like to thank the community for their efforts to conserve drinking water.
Groundwater Investigation on Elphinstone Avenue
The SCRD is conducting a groundwater investigation to determine the long term water yield from the Granthams/Soames area aquifer. While this work is being done, the Granthams Landing Community Park on Elphinstone Avenue near Granthams Landing Hall will be temporarily closed from July 8 to July 26. Please avoid the area and watch for construction traffic. For more information about the park closure, please contact 604-885-6802 or email@example.com.
The watermain on the Chapman Creek Bridge is in need of replacement and this work will begin on July 15 for up to two weeks. To help reduce traffic congestion, work will take place in the evenings and nights beginning at 7:00 p.m. and ending at 4:00 a.m. The public should expect some traffic delays.
The SCRD would like to thank the public for their patience while this necessary maintenance work is completed. For more information, please contact 604-885-6806 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
