WSC Urgent Press Release – Major Failure on WSC Water Transmission Main on Prince Charles Drive, Approximately 300 West of Beatrice Avenue.Repairs Complete and Full System Restoration Substantially Complete
The Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) wishes to provide the following final update for our valued customers and the general public with respect to the major failure of our water transmission main on Prince Charles Drive, approximately 300 feet west of Beatrice Avenue; which we experienced earlier this morning.
The required repairs were completed at approximately 5PM today and restoration of normal water supply commenced immediately thereafter. As of 8PM this evening, it is anticipated that the restoration of normal water supply will be substantially complete.
Our team is presently on site completing the necessary site restoration works to open the roadway. Motorists are asked to exercise extreme when passing thru the area of the works as the transmission main failure earlier today has created an uneven road surface. WSC will be taking immediate steps to temporarily reinstate the roadway until the permanent works can be scheduled and executed.
WSC extends our sincere apologies to our valued customers in Eastern NP who were impacted earlier today and to the residents, businesses, pedestrians and motorists in the immediate area of the works for the inconvenience caused. We sincerely appreciate and thank you for your patience.
Any customer who is still experiencing low pressure and/or no water or any water quality challenge is urged to contact our Call Center at 302-5599 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
