Metro Vancouver has Delayed Project for One Week Due to Snow Removal Efforts

Public Service Announcement
For Immediate Release
February 7, 2017

Langley, BC – The Metro Vancouver pressure-regulating valve project on the Clayton-Langley Water Main has been delayed to allow Langley City staff to focus on snow removal efforts. The two-day operational field test that was scheduled for February 7-9 has been rescheduled to February 15 to 17, and Metro Vancouver valve project will now commence work on February 27 to March 2.

On February 27, 2017, the valve project, located at 196 Street and Fraser Highway, requires the water main to be shut off, which will temporarily affect the source of the City’s water supply. Traffic in the area of 192nd and Fraser Highway & 196th, and Fraser Highway will be impacted intermittently during this time.

Residents are advised that during this time, the City of Langley will receive water from the Township of Langley’s water system. Residents should not notice any change in water quality or pressure during this work however if you experience 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 regularly completed by the City of Langley and Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver to ensure water is consistently safe to drink. If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Department at 604-514-2997 or engineering@langleycity.ca.
