DATES UPDATED – Mercer Celgar has delayed its work scheduled for June 16/17, 2022 until June 19/20, 2022.
This means water conservation is not necessary June 16/17, 2022 but will be restricted to essential use only June 19/20, 2022.
The City is asking residents to limit water consumption to essential use only on June 7/8, 2022 and June 16/17, 2022.
This is required to facilitate scheduled upgrades to Mercer Celgar’s electrical system which the City’s primary water supply line is dependent on.
“These routine upgrades will ensure a higher power system reliability,” says Fabian Glowalla, Mercer Celgar’s Manager of Energy and Innovation. ”They also have corresponding benefits for the connected users, including the City’s primary water supply.”
“It is important for Castlegar residents to limit water consumption during this two-day maintenance period to ensure the City has adequate water available,” says Chris Hallam, the City’s Director of Municipal Services. “We appreciate the community considering water use during these four days.”
