Water woes on the streets (and under the streets) of Cranbrook

  • Feb. 11, 2014 2:00 p.m.

City of Cranbrook Public Works Water crews were dealing with five separate water main breaks around the City Tuesday morning. Crews have done their very best to notify all the affected residents. The water break locations include:

6th Street North and 17th Avenue North; 14th Street South and 3rd Avenue South; 18th Avenue South and 10th Street South; 216 8th Avenue South; #6 Anderson Crescent

Public Works advises that two breaks are being repaired now and as manpower and equipment are available, they will move on to the other breaks.

Public Works have rented two additional machines to assist in the repair work.

It is hoped that all the breaks will be repaired and water services restored to all residences by the end of the day.

Once water service is restored, residents may notice that the water is discoloured. This discolouration is not considered a health concern. You are advised to run your cold water tap until the water runs clear.

The City of Cranbrook apologizes for any inconvenience.
