New water line on Centre
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]glengarry.ca
During the construction process taking place in your area, you may notice the following changes:
* Your water may become cloudy or discoloured.
* Your water supply may be interrupted for short periods of time
* You may experience lower than normal water pressure.
* A boil water advisory may be issued. Contact the Water Works Department if your water remains discoloured after running your taps for more than 20 minutes.
