Area B Potable Water Station Construction   

The Peace River Regional District will be constructing the Potable Water Tank Loader Stations over the next five months.  At some point during the construction, the water will be shut off at the stations for a period of no longer than 5 days. The PRRD will provide advance notice when the shutdowns will occur so that people can top up their tanks and /or make arrangements to go to an alternate site to get water when it is shut down. It is intended to have no more than one station down at a time during these construction windows.
