Water pressure has been restored to the Lively area following repairs to the bypass system put in place to continue water service while we worked to repair a previous break.
In the event of discoloured water, residents are asked to run their faucets for several minutes to clear sediment. If discoloration remains, contact 311.
The City thanks residents for their patience, and apologizes sincerely for the challenges caused by this issue.
Some residents in Lively have been left without water due to a malfunctioning bypass system installed as city crews work to repair a water main.
Repair work has been ongoing since Feb. 25.
Earlier this morning, the city issued a press release about low water pressure in the area as freezing temperatures caused low and fluctuating water pressure in parts of Lively.
A bypass system was put in place to continue water service while crews worked to repair a previous break. It has malfunctioned due to freezing temperatures.
The city had anticipated having it fixed by about about 10:30 a.m., but is now informing residents of Lively to conserve water while crews continue work on the water main repair.
Residents may fill their own containers with municipally treated water at filling stations located on: Bay Street in Whitefish; Countryside Drive in Sudbury, near the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex.
Residents who can access these fill stations are asked to share resources with neighbours and relatives.
For more information, call 311.
