Temporary Boil Water Advisory for Cloverdale

Boil Water Advisory in Cloverdale

August 14, 2014

Yesterday at approximately 3:50 PM a major water main that feeds to the Cloverdale area broke in the 176 Street and 6800 block. City crews isolated the section of main which led to the problem and subsequently provided service through alternate feeds to the area.

Due to the size of the main and the ability to drain the local Cloverdale water system it took several hours to fill and regain full pressure, between 7:00 to 8:00 PM last night.

The temporary water service outage impacted residents from approximately 52 to 72 Avenues and 160 to 196 Streets. Residents experienced issues ranging from low pressure, no water and discolored water in the above noted area.

The break occurred due to a separation at a pipe joint on 176 Street. It will take some time to repair due to damage to the supporting structure of the surrounding ground. Temporary service will be supplied to any remaining residents and businesses along 176 Street between 64 and 68 Avenues that remain without water.

Fraser Health Authority issued a boil water advisory as a precautionary measure early last night. That advisory is expected to be lifted later today. For further information about the advisory please contact Fraser Health Authority at www.FraserHealth.ca or Fraser Health Media Pager 604-450-7881 and media@fraserhealth.ca.

Residents can also obtain a map of the area and up-to-date information on the City’s website www.surrey.ca or contact the city at 604-591-4152 or EngOperations@surrey.ca to report a problem or submit a request.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and apologize for any inconveniences.
