Emergency Water Service – 2020 Landslide

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.
