Due to damage caused by a recent water main break, City Engineering will be replacing a manhole and section of pipe in the 6th Ave & Caribou area. To ensure there is no sewer service disruption, there will be a bypass pump set up and running overnight. The pump, when operating, will produce a noise 70-80 decibels. The area will be marked for safety reasons and the City asks residents to keep children away from the area. The pump will be in operation until the end of day tomorrow when the repair of the sanitary manhole and sanitary line are expected to be complete. City crews will be monitoring the pump throughout the night. Residents should not experience service disruptions overnight and during the repair period.

Warmer than normal daytime temperatures combined with freezing overnight are creating accumulations of water on our City streets and forming of potholes in some areas. City crews are currently monitoring street conditions and managing surface drainage on priority streets. Residents can help alert the City to other areas that need attention by calling the City’s Road Condition Hotline at 306-694-4550. This hotline is monitored regularly and concerns are passed along to the Public Works Department for investigation. Drivers are reminded to slow down and to use extra caution and courtesy when driving through pools of water on streets. Please take extra care when driving by pedestrians and work crews.
