Notice About Temporary Mains Water Shut-Off

29 Apr 2019

The water main that serves 8th to 24th floors of our building must be shut off to allow for cleaning and chlorination of main water tank. Water main will be closed on Monday the 29th of April 2019 between approximately 9:00am and 3:00pm. Please draw enough water to supply your needs during this period.

Please ensure all taps are closed until works are complete. Contact the lodge for verification.

Residents of flats, which may have automatic flush valves, are encouraged to close a valve at their water meter during the water shut down. This should help prevent a loss of water pressure in the building, and hopefully prevent the flush valves from continuously running when the water is turned back on.

Please note there is potential for discolouration in the water.

The water mains are made of steel and when the tank refills there have been some issues in the past of water coming in with a slight brown tinge to it, due to the higher flow rates when the tank refills. The contractors will do everything to avoid this, however it is perfectly safe.

If water shows discolouration, run the water until it clears. If water is available from most taps, but won’t flow from a particular one, remove the screen from that tap and run water. Clean the tap screen and reinstall it.

If you have any concerns regarding the water service interruption, please contact the Managing Agent.

Thank you for your cooperation.
