Water service shutoff postponed for Mabel Lake residents

Water shutoff rescheduled

The timing of a water shutoff for some customers of the Mabel Lake Water Utility has been changed.

Service was to have been shut off today for residents on Walker Road, but it has been postponed to Monday due to operational delays.

Water supply will be turned off between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. for planned construction work.

The interruption could be extended if unforeseen circumstances arise, however.

It is suggested that residents store a short-term water supply for cooking and toilet use before the service interruption.

When service has been restored, residents may experience cloudiness and/or air in the water. Run a cold tap closest to where the water enters your residence at low volume until the water has cleared.
