CORNER BROOK — The City of Corner Brook says there should not be any disruption in water service as it temporarily draws from a different location on the Corner Brook Stream source.
As part of the ongoing preparations for a new water treatment plant and the twinning of the Trans-Canada Highway just west of the city, some work is required to install a new water line through the area near Massey Drive.
The overall work of the water line is being co-ordinated by the province, but a portion of the work requires a temporary system to keep municipal water pumping during the bypass operation.
So, amid some new piping near the Three-Mile Dam area of the Corner Brook Stream, three temporary pumps have been set up to maintain water flow to properties serviced by the municipal water system.
Normally, municipal water is fed into the system from nearby Trout Pond, which itself is fed by the Corner Brook Stream.
Steve May, the City of Corner Brook's director of operational services, said no water outages are planned as part of the work.
"The pipes there have some redundancy, so it should have no impact on the city," he said.
Testing of the water system should take around 24 hours and the work should be finished within a week, said May.
