02/26/2015 OLGA WATER LINE BREAK

The leak in the Olga Water Users system has been isolated to a break in the 3″ main across from Sandy Taylor’s place on Point Lawrence Road.  The only impacted areas are served by the 3″ main up Cemetary Road and the 6″ main down Point Lawrence Road.  EJ Young Road and other parts of the system are not affected at all.  The pumps in the plant are working hard to fill up our storage tank and the sand filters are working as they should.  Island Excavators is on site and will make the repairs this afternoon.  Ted Wixom, System Manager, and Mike Lawless, System Operator  are on site working with Island Ex.  Be prepared to be without water for the rest of the day (02/26/2015)  After the repairs are complete the affected parts of the system will have to be flushed out.

At this time there is no need to boil your water.  Updates will be published here as further information becomes available
