The municipal government has issued a statement on the line break.
According to the statement, impacted residents have been notified about the incident. Water will be interrupted along 34 Street between 51 Avenue and 52 Avenue. Services will also be interrupted between 34 Street and 32 Street along 52 Avenue.
The repairs to the line will be carried out today by Rusway Construction, and service is expected to be back on by the end of the day.
Some residents in the south end of the Border City will be without water this afternoon.
A water main break near the intersection of 52 Avenue and 34 Street has resulted in water being turned off to residences in the immediate area of the break. Workers are on-scene dealing with the issue, which has left 34 Street blocked off to traffic just off 52 Avenue.
According to Travis Aykroyd, an employee of Cam-Tel Line Location, the break was due to temperature changes bending the water pipes under the street. He estimated the break would be repaired within 24 hours.
