Late Tuesday afternoon, the BWA completed repairing the main at Roebuck Street, the City. The water is being turned on gradually to allow the pressure in the main to build up slowly. No further leaks have been seen.
Again the Authority apologises to its customers for the interruptions in service and thanks them for their patience over the past days. According to the release – Thanks is also in order to the BWA’s work and tanker crews as well as the Supervisors who remained on the job in spite of the inclement weather to address the recurring bursts.
On a different note, some customers in St. John may have suffered water outages Tuesday as the BWA was forced to stop pumping from the Bowmanston Station. This resulted from discoloured water appearing in the well and was caused by the inclement weather experienced in the area Wednesday. It is hoped that pumping can resume overnight weather permitting. Water should flow through the taps of the affected residents again therefore by Wednesday morning.
