Water to be shut-off in parts of Mission Thursday

Hundreds of homes in Crawford and Westpoint will be left dry today while a watermain is repaired.

The City Of Kelowna has announced an emergency water shut-off will take effect Thursday, Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the south Mission, affecting hundreds of homes in the Crawford and Westpoint subdivision.

The city says the water shut-off is necessary so emergency repairs can be made to a broken watermain that was discovered leaking on Wednesday.

Bypass water distribution and isolating sections of watermain are not options for the repair, say city officials.

The shut-off is expected to impact as many as 300 to 400 homes.

Homes on the following streets will be affected:

In Crawford:

• Crawford Rd. from Dehart Rd. to Stewart Rd. West

• 4732 Westridge Dr. to Crawford Rd.

• Crawford Ct.

• Parkridge Ct.

• Missionridge Ct.

• Parkridge Dr. from Appleridge Dr. to Crawford Rd.

• Oakridge Rd.

• Blueridge Rd.

• Missionridge Rd.

• Missionridge Dr.

In Westpoint:

• 908 Westpoint Dr. to end of Westpoint Dr.

• Westpoint Pl.

• Bartholewmew Ct.

In minimizing the water services disruption, residents are encouraged to store water for necessity throughout the day.

The city is apologizing for the inconvenience and appreciates the patience of residents during the emergency repair.

No explanation of how the leak occurred was given by the city as of late Wednesday.
