Planned water outage date changed

The date of a planned water outage in Fairmont Hot Springs has changed from Wednesday, Nov. 24 to Thursday, November 25.

Fairmont Hot Springs Water & Sewer and Fairmont Community Association this afternoon began notifying Fairmont residents of the water outage, which will begin at 7 a.m. and is expected to be completed by 5 p.m.

The outage is needed to replace a watermain valve on Wills Road at Fairway Drive.

This outage will affect the entire Fairmont Hot Springs utility area except for Fairmont Lodge.

It is recommended to fill a bathtub with water prior to the outage to facilitate flushing toilets or basic sanitation.

As a precautionary measure, a temporary Boil Water Advisory will be in place from November 25 onwards and until further notice.

This precautionary advisory is being issued due to the risk of contamination when water systems are turned off and depressurized, which means the safety of the drinking water supply cannot be immediately ensured.
