Water main break repaired; service restored
UPDATE: The water main repair is complete with water service restored. Backfilling of the hole is happening as we speak and will remain gravel until the spring when we can get asphalt to complete the street repair.
Water service is being shutdown near the Cranbrook Golf Course this morning for an emergency water main repair.
Public Works water crews will be shutting off water to residents on 2nd Street South between 27th Ave South and 31st Ave South, which will also include residents on the 2B Street cul-de-sac.
Once the water service is restored, residents can expect some dirty water in their taps. Please simply run your cold water taps until the water runs clear.
The City of Cranbrook apologizes for any issues this work may cause and appreciated the patience and understanding of those residents being affected.
UPDATE as per 11 a.m.: Crews are still digging to find the leak. Residents still have water but pressure has been reduced. Road access is still open, but traffic flow is reduced.
Public Works will have water service restored as soon as possible.
