Emergency Road Closure June 9th 2019

WHERE:         Atlantic Slipway to R. Douglas Chemist

DATE:             Sunday 9th June 2019

TIME:              09:00 – 18:00       

Emergency works to the mains water pipe on the road between the Atlantic slipway and R. Douglas Chemist will take place this Sunday, (9th June). These works will restrict safe vehicle access, therefore the Council is closing the road for the period of the works.

During the works, there is a possibility that St Mary's public water customers from St Marys Hall Hotel, through to the Garrison may experience some interruption to their water supply; however the Water Department will be aiming to carry out the work in such a way as to cause as little disruption as possible.

Once the works have been undertaken, there may be some discolouration of the water. This is normal. White ‘milky’ appearing water (which clears on standing) is as a result of aeration to the water and can last several days. Any other discolouration is a disturbance of sediment which will only last a very short time and can be cleared by running your taps.

These works are essential and any interruption will be avoided as far as possible, however the full scale and impact of the works cannot be anticipated.
