Metro Vancouver Water Supply Repair

Share on:

Date: 
February 3, 2017

The City of Langley has been advised by its water supplier, Metro Vancouver, that a pressure-regulating valve on the Clayton-Langley Water Main needs repair. The valve, located at 196 Street and Fraser Highway, must be shut off in order to complete this work, which will temporarily affect the source of the City’s water supply.

On February 7, 2017, Metro Vancouver will commence a two-day operational field test before moving to complete the valve repair from February 20 to February 24. Traffic in the area of 192nd and Fraser Highway & 196th and Fraser Highway will be impacted intermittently during this time.

Residents should be advised that during this time, the City of Langley will receive water from the Township of Langley’s water system. Computer modelling of the temporary water supply scenario has been completed and it will be field-tested to ensure that average daily water service to our residents will not be affected.

If residents notice cloudy water they are advised to let the water run until it clears. Cloudy water and changes in water taste are no cause for concern; water quality testing is completed regularly by the City of Langley and Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver to ensure water is consistently safe to drink.
