The Glengarry News - - News -

The North Glen­garry Wa­ter Works Depart­ment has be­gun work to re­place a wa­ter line on Cen­tre Street, be­tween Main Street South and Bishop Street South, in Alexan­dria. Work crews will be busy re­plac­ing the four-inch duc­tile iron wa­ter main with a new six-inch PVC pipe. This will im­prove the qual­ity and quan­tity of wa­ter flow­ing to af­fected res­i­dents, the town­ship says.

Con­struc­tion of the new wa­ter line be­gan Au­gust 20.

“In or­der to min­i­mize wa­ter pres­sure losses, Wa­ter Works staff may be re­quired to en­ter your res­i­dence to hook up a tem­po­rary ser­vice. The en­tire project is ex­pected to take five weeks to com­plete,” the mu­nic­i­pal­ity says.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Dean McDon­ald, North Glen­garry En­vi­ron­men­tal Ser­vices Man­ager, at 613-525-3087, or by email at wa­ter­[email protected]­glen­

* Your wa­ter may be­come cloudy or dis­coloured.

* You may ex­pe­ri­ence lower than nor­mal wa­ter pres­sure.
