ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

MALAHIDE, BAYHAM WATER BREAK

(Contributed) – Rob Johnson, Director of Physical Services for Malahide, reports that yesterday afternoon’s water pipeline breach has now been repaired and the water system was re-pressurized as of 8 pm yesterday. A boil water advisory issued yesterday by the St. Thomas Elgin Health Unit however remains in effect. The line was put out of commission when a contractor working on Dexter Line in Port Bruce damaged the main line. Customers affected were in south Malahide and Bayham including Pt Bruce, Copenhagen, Pt Burwell and Vienna as well as in southern Central Elgin west of Pt Bruce. About 1350 customers were affected. The water main was thoroughly flushed and sampled during the re-pressurization. The Ontario Clean Water Agency, who are the contracted operating authority, is still in the process of further sampling and testing the water system. It is hoped that full service will be restored prior to the weekend.
