Emergency Extension of Water Interruption

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Town has had to complete an emergency shut down of water services from the intersection of Portugal Cove Road/Jordan Place down to and including Anglican Cemetery Road and all by-roads.

We apologize for the inconvenience.  This will be in place until 11:00 p.m. this evening, June 9, 2016.  If you require water, please contact the Public Works office at 895-8000, ext. 228 for delivery of a temporary supply of water.

We recommended that electrical service to hot water boilers be shut down during the water outage. This can normally be accomplished by shutting off the electrical breaker in the electrical panel.

Following Service Resumption, the following is recommended:

Residents should run the cold water tap until water is clear and free from air in the line.

If the hot water boiler was disconnected, prior to returning electrical service run the hot water tap until all air is removed from the line.  Then re-establish electrical service.
