The Ucluelet Volunteer Fire Brigade with be conducting a training exercise on Rain Forest Lane and Helen Road (on Hyphocus Island Tuesday September 18, 2018 Between 7 pm to 9 pm.
The exercise will consist of utilizing hydrants within the municipal system.
The movement of water through the hydrants at high velocity creates a disturbance in the normal demands on the system and can result in sediment being suspended in the water which can cause discoloration.
We suggest that laundry activities be postponed during the duration of the exercise (2 hours) to allow for the water supply to stabilize and return to normal operations.
If you note discoloration in your water supply during the duration of the exercise we suggest running outside faucets until the water clears.
We apologize for any inconvenience, however it is imperative the Fire Brigade perform regular exercises in order to maintain the skills and training necessary to provide the maximum protection for our community.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
