The June edition of the Fanny Bay Flyer is available on-line.
UPDATE: Notice of Planned Water Service Interruption
Baynes Drive – all properties south of Ships Point Road
Park Road – all properties
Ships Point Road (7890, 7891, 7894,7895, 7900, 7901, 7905, 7906)
Beginning Monday, June 26
Service connections to residences in the Baynes loop area have been delayed so that construction crews can complete the installation of fire hydrants on Tozer Road, as safety concerns for potential fire coverage is a priority.
As a result, construction crews will begin the process of connecting the new water lines on the Baynes Drive / Park Road / Ships Point Road loop, Monday afternoon, June 26 or Tuesday morning June 27.
Water service through the old line will be maintained during the switch, so interruptions to service should be minimal. Water service to each residence will be interrupted for approximately one hour while they connect the new lateral line and install a curb stop box.
The contractor has advised us that as the new service connection is made to each residence, it is recommended that residents run an outside tap for several minutes to flush any grit that may be in the line, to prevent clogging of faucet screens inside the house.
It is also strongly recommended that residents not run taps or flush toilets while the contractors are making the service connection, as there’s a high likelihood that dirt and debris can be pulled into the system while the water line is cut, which may result in blockages in homeowners’ plumbing systems.
The work day is 7am to 7pm, so please be prepared for this brief interruption of service when they reach your residence.
Please continue to keep an emergency supply of water on hand.
