North Half of Brandon’s Victoria Ward To Experience Temporary Water Pressure Decreases Between July 25th and August 1st

July 25, 2017

*Updated on July 27th, 2017**


Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Engineering Department wishes to inform all property owners, business owners and tenants of property located in the north half of Brandon’s Victoria Ward of anticipated temporary decreases in water pressure, beginning later this morning (Tuesday, July 25th) and continuing though until sometime on Tuesday, August 1st. This series of pressure decreases will be due to the replacement of a major watermain in the area as part of the ongoing 34th Street and Victoria Avenue Intersection Improvement Project.

All properties in the area bordered by Victoria Avenue to the south, the CP Railway tracks to the north, 34th Street to the east and Brandon City Limits to the west should expect to experience decreases in pressure for the duration of the work. While the majority of properties will experience reduced pressure on Monday, July 31st and Tuesday, August 1st,  it is anticipated that specific properties will experience a complete loss of pressure for varying lengths of time on these days, at which time necessary tie-ins to the existing main will be completed. These impacted property owners/tenants are being directly contacted in advance of this scheduled disruption.

All property owners and tenants impacted by this temporary water pressure decrease and/or loss are requested to exercise water conservation and reduce water consumption to essential use only during this time. Residents or property owners who may experience discoloured water coming from their taps in relation to the above noted work are instructed to run their taps until the water turns clear. The water system in the impacted area is expected to be back to normal pressure by Wednesday, August 2nd.

The City of Brandon thanks the public for their continued patience and cooperation during this project. Any questions relating to the above noted water pressure disruptions can be directed to the City of Brandon’s Engineering Department at 204-729-2214.
