HUDSON'S HOPE -- The District of Hudson’s Hope has issued a request advising residents to limit their water use following challenges with emergency waterline repairs.

In a public service notice, the District says it encountered a ‘number of obstacles’ while conducting repairs on an emergency distribution waterline at its temporary treatment plant.

“The work is taking longer than expected,” said the District.

CAO Crystal Brown says the District’s reservoir levels are currently at 85 per cent, and are not expected to reach capacity for several more days.

The Water Conservation Request asks for residents’ cooperation in conserving water and minimizing unnecessary water use by not watering lawns, not washing exterior strictures, taking shorter showers, and opting for full loads when running dishwashers and washing machines until further notice.

There is currently no timeline as to when the repairs to the waterline will be complete.
