Water outage

A water outage, precautionary boil water advisory, and a road closure has been scheduled for today starting at 5 p.m.

The outage and road closure on Humber Road from 262-280 and Riverside Drive from the intersection of Humber Road to the intersection of River Park Place and all side roads is expected to last about 8-10 hours. It is necessary to make capital works improvements to the water distribution system.

In conjunction with the repairs, Humber Road will be closed to traffic from the intersection of Station Road (East end) to the intersection of Riverside Drive. The general motoring public is advised to use other routes.

Due to the time required for testing to confirm water quality in the systems, the boil water advisory is expected to remain in effect until further notice.

Meanwhile, a second water outage and road closure is in effect on Windsor Street, impacting houses 32-105.

The outage is the result of repairs being done to the water distribution system. It is expected to last between 6-8 hours. Windsor Street is closed to traffic from the intersections of Philip Drive and Elizabeth Street.
