Emergency Water Service Installation and Safety Practices
Out of an abundance of caution a boil water advisory is issued. An advisory is just that – advice, not a legal requirement, and is similar to the understanding many homeowners have with their regular water haulers.
PRRD’s contractor for the emergency water service follows these installation and safety practices:
- Water lines are new; each connection is sterilized and safety sealed
- Pressure reduction valves maintain 57 psi pressure maximum during water shuttle operations
- Relief valves and TRV 2-way suction and pressure valves installed
- Tanks are brand new and will be flushed and purged out flushed out prior to final hook up
- All fittings are new, sanitized, safety sealed and wrapped prior to water being shuttled
- On completion of water shuttle operations a sanitizer slug flushes out hose
- Open-ended connections have plugs
- Lock out tag out procedures are followed
- No water is held overnight. Lines are flushed, sanitizer slug transported and the system is locked and tagged.
Per Northern Health, out of an abundance of caution a boil water advisory has been posted conspicuously on the water delivery system and is provided to residents collecting water or receiving a water delivery.
