Booster Station Temporary Shutdown

Posted on

Impacted Booster Zone

Water pressure continues to be impacted in the Tiffin and Edson Drive areas due to a break at the Edson Drive Booster Station. The leak is still being investigated and repair options are being explored at this time.

More details will be released as information becomes available. 



On Monday, February 26th, a pipe break was discovered at the Booster Station. Upon further investigation the leak appears to be on the INLET pipe entering building, and possibly under the building.

Due to the nature of the break, and potential damage it may cause, the facility will remain closed/isolated until further notice. Once a full assessment of the damage is complete, a plan for repairs will be communicated.

This means the lower water pressure will continue in the zone outlined in the attached map as work continues.

In the event of an emergency such as a structure fire, the system can be started again until the emergency is under control.

We understand the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience while the situation is dealt with.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the Utilities Department by calling the Edson Public Works Office, Monday to Friday (7:30am-4pm) at 780-723-6461, calling our after-hours emergency number at 780-723-6300, or by emailing utilities@edson.ca.
