The water supply shutdown that was expected to happen in Castlegar overnight on Wednesday, May 1 has been cancelled.
Chris Barlow, director of transportation and civic works for the City of Castlegar, said they were notified by Celgar that electrical work necessitating the shutdown is not required at this time and will be postponed.
Most people may not have noticed anyway.
“We share our water intake with Celgar so when they shut down, the big lake pumps that supply the city with raw water is down,” said Barlow in an earlier interview. “But in our distribution system we have eight reservoirs that hold potable, treated water, so we’re still able to keep everybody in potable water.”
