Bear Creek Well project extended

The Bear Creek Well shut down has been extended into summer.

The Bear Creek Well shut down has been extended into summer.

According to a press release from the City of Trail, homes in Shavers Bench, Miral Heights and Glenmerry will continue to get their water from the city’s water treatment plant.

The original plan was to have the Bear Creek Well fully up and running by April 30, but an unforeseen water main repair slowed down the project’s progress, changing the end-date to sometime in mid-June.

As with the original notice of improvements at the well, city officials warn that there may be a chlorine odour coming from the tap water, and advise water-drinkers to leave some water in an open container overnight to get rid of the smell.

Residents in Waneta will begin to receive their water from the Bear Creek Well.

The project will result in “more efficient circulation of the city’s water supply” and will up the Green Gables reservoir capacity from 65 per cent to 100 per cent.
