EDMONTON, AB: WATER RESTORED TO RESIDENTS OF EDMONTON CONDO AFTER 1 WEEK, AB
After a week-long shut down, water service has been restored to hundreds of people in a southeast Edmonton condo complex.
On March 22, a water main broke that cut off water for all 78 units of the Laurentian Estates facility located 1452 Lakewood Rd. West in Mill Woods.
Engineers and water experts decided that the best course of action was to replace the old water main with a new one. Repair work March 27th and was completed March 29th.
While residents were reliant upon water-dispensing trucks supplied by Epcor Utilities Inc., these water-filling stations ran out regularly and required frequent refills. Two out of the five tankers used by EPCOR in Edmonton were used.
Numerous reports cited growing frustration with each passing day among tenants and condo owners at the inconvenience of having to rely on EPCOR's trucks to meet their basic water needs.
All water lines and valves within private property are the owner's responsibility to maintain and repair.
This reporter was able to reach property manager Robert Lerner of KDM Management, the company that oversees the condominium. In an email, Mr. Lerner said, "I can tell you water has been restored. Any perceived delays in these matters is usually from the location of the break."
Amanda Ash, Digital Media Specialist, Public & Government Affairs at EPCOR confirmed in an email that "...EPCOR turned the water back on at the Laurentian Estates condo complex on the afternoon of March 29. We completed the turn on after the property owner confirmed repairs on the private system were complete and requested the water be turned back on."
