Some West Kelowna residents will hear a number of explosions Wednesday, but the city says there’s nothing to worry about.
City hall is advising Lakeview Heights residents that a series of detonations will occur at 3055 Thacker Drive for one week, beginning Wednesday, August 23. The blasting will be conducted weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
T & A Rock Works Inc. has applied for, and received, a blasting permit to accommodate the extension of Wales Road and related underground services for a 14-lot subdivision in the area.
The company says series of twelve warning honks will sound within two minutes of each detonation; and a five-second long all clear sound will go off at the conclusion of each blast.
Questions regarding the blasting should be directed to T & A Rock Works Inc. at 250-765-4811 or firstname.lastname@example.org, says the city.
