PUC Building

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – PUC wishes to advise the public of the following water distribution activities for the week of December 15th, 2014. This notice is organized into three sections; Infrastructure Renewal, Operation Activities and UDF Activity.

INFRASTRUCTURE RENEWAL

PUC is committed to the continual improvement of our water distribution system. The following is a list of active infrastructure renewal projects currently underway:

·      Forest Avenue

·      A section of watermain at the intersection of Simpson Street and Forest Avenue is being replaced. During that process, customers in the area generally bounded by Ontario Avenue to Wellington Street and Pim Street to Upton Road are reminded that there is a possibility they could draw discoloured water.

OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Operational activities for the week are:       

·         606 Connaught Avenue

o   A developer is installing a commercial water service for a new building. During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

·         Crimson Ridge Condo Development

o   A developer is installing a commercial water service for a condominium development. During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

·         785 Great Northern Road – Northside Mazda

o   A developer is installing a commercial water service for the new Northside Mazda During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

·         306 Northern Avenue East – Lowe’s

o   A developer is installing a new commercial water service at the request of the customer. During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

·         75 Huron Street

o   A developer is installing a new commercial water service at the request of the customer. During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

·         496 Second Line West

o   A developer is installing a commercial water service for a new apartment complex. During this process, PUC will oversee the testing and commissioning of this new service.

There is a chance customers in the areas impacted by Infrastructure Renewal or Operational Activities could experience discoloured water. This is because any time there is a major change in the rate or direction of flow of water in the distribution system, sediment in the watermains can be disturbed and carried along with the water.

UNIDIRECTIONAL FLUSHING PROGRAM

PUC water customers are advised that the Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) Program has finished for the season.

The PUC would like to remind all customers that work scheduled for next week is tentative and subject to change due to weather or resource constraints.
