Water Line Repair in Edzo

Due to a water line break in Edzo yesterday, underground water was stopped in parts of the community while a temporary water repair could be completed last night.  After parts arrive this morning, a proper water line repair will be completed later, therefore there may be another short water outage again while that repair is completed.

As a result of the water pressure stopping and starting last night, sediment in the water lines and hot water tanks may have been disturbed, and this may cause a temporary discolouring of the water in some areas of Edzo.  Should this happen, we encourage residents to simply flush their water lines.  Although the water may have a temporary colour, it is potable and safe to drink.  

Finally, to confirm water safety, the Community Government of Behchokǫ̀ will be completing additional water testing in Edzo.  Should you have any concerns about the water in your home, please contact the Community Government of Behchokǫ̀ Office, and we will arrange for on-site testing.
