East Trail taps might run dry this weekend

The City of Trail has notified East Trail residents of water interruption on Saturday.


The city is advising East Trail residents on the 1600 and 1700 block of Columbia Avenue and the 1300 block of McQuarrie and Thom streets that water service will be disrupted tomorrow (Saturday).

The work may interrupt or shut down water service between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

If dirty water is experienced when the water is turned back on, the city advises residents to run their taps for several minutes until the water runs clear.

Any concerns should be directed to public works at 364.0840.

Shutting down the service is all part of upgrades being made to the city’s infrastructure, in particular secondary water lines which will be hung on the new walking bridge.

Once the new water connections are in place, the dug up intersection at Second Avenue and McQuarrie Street will be re-paved.

“It’s been dug up a couple of times and frustrating for people living over there,” says city engineer Warren Proulx. “But it’s all in the name of progress and something we planned for when we decided to built that bridge.”
