PIPE LEAKS, WATER SHUT OFF, BWA ISSUED, EMERGENCY DECLARED IN BRIGHTON, ON


There was a huge water leak in Brighton's main water supply on Saturday, April 18. The mayor immediateley sent out a press release advising residents that a boil water advisory was in effect; that the water was shut off; that there was a burn ban and that bottled water was available at the King Edward Park Community Centre.

Later on in the day the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge Health Unit asked the town's restaurants to close, and at one point over the weekend a state of emergency was declared. Crews worked throughout the night and on Sunday the pipe was repaired and the system back on. However, the boil water advisory remains in effect until furhter testing confirms that is clean.

In all, eight press releases were issued over the last few days. Yet, when contacted the municipality was reluctant to provide any more detail as to what had caused the breakage, and if the age of the pipe or ice had played a role."

"The advisory affects 6900, one pipe was fixed and more are being fixed as they go along," was all Scott, a spokesperson with the Health Unit would say."The information is all on the town's website."

In fact, the information on the town's website only refers to one pipe leak.
