KEEPING RESIDENTS IN THE LOOP

How long will the construction be continuing in my neighborhood?

All jobs and job sites are different. It is difficult to estimate how long a job will take to complete. Residents are usually on our temporary water supply for approximately three weeks.

Will the rehabilitation process increase my water pressure?

No it will not. Water volume may increase but local pressure will always remain constant. Most residents experience a greater volume while they are connected to our temporary water supply as a result of the size of the hose connected to your outside tap. Once this hose is removed, normal water volume will resume. The only way to permanently increase water volume is to increase the size of the water service pipe that runs from the water main to your home. Installing a new water service is not a service that FER-PAL supplies.

Will I be notified in advance of when a scheduled shut-off is to occur?

Yes. During the rehabilitation process residents and commercial establishments will be notified (via hand-deliver), of the time and date(s) of when the water will be shut off for lining purposes and hydrant and valve repairs/replacements as per contract requirement. It is necessary when lining the pipe to shut off the water supply to eliminate any leaking water from escaping back in through your service into the pipe which will disturb the cement mortar from setting.

Can I still flush my toilet during the water shut-off?

Yes. The tank in the back of toilet must be three quarters full in order for the toilet to flush. Reserve a supply of water by filling your bathtub. Simply use a bucket to replenish the toilet’s reserve tank after each flush.
