City of Brandon Engineering Services and Underground Utilities Section are advising residents that a water main replacement project on Victoria Avenue from 18th Street to 26th Street is set to commence on Wednesday, July 21st, 2021. The project is expected to be completed by next Friday, July 30th, 2021.
All businesses and residents in the affected area will have water. However, some water service disruption is possible at times. If discoloured water is drawn, residents are encouraged to run their taps until the water becomes clear. If discoloured water continues to be drawn from the tap more than a few hours after flushing, please contact the City of Brandon Underground Utilities Section at 204-729-2285.
Some houses or businesses may also receive a boil water advisory during this project. If this is the case, a written Maintenance Advisory Notice will be dropped off in the affected mailboxes. Please take note of the sample image below. Those who receive a boil water advisory should ensure all water should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute before it is used for:
- Drinking and ice making
- Preparing beverages, such as infant formula
- Preparing food
- Brushing teeth
It is not necessary to boil tap water used for other household purposes, such as laundry or washing dishes.
Traffic will also be impacted during this project on Victoria Avenue from 18th Street to 26th Street. Please follow posted signage and avoid the area if possible.
