Water Pressure Loss - 09/May/2012

At approximately 11:30 pm on Tuesday, May 8th 2012, Langdon Waterworks Limited experienced a massive water loss to our system resulting in pressure loss and a water supply interruption.  By 2:25 am the source of the water main failure was detected and isolated.

The water interruption was caused by an unapproved connection to Langdon Waterworks infrastructure in the Hanson Estates Subdivision.  All efforts were made by Rocky View Utility Corp. staff to locate and remedy the situation as soon as possible.

Some residents of Langdon who are connected to the Langdon Waterworks water system may experience some discoloration in the water on Wednesday, May 9th, due to water surging in the water mains caused by water pressure loss.

Rocky View Utility Corp. staff will be testing water for quality assurance purposes throughout the day on Wednesday and a water flushing program will take place in order to clear the water lines.  This process is expected to be completed by Wednesday afternoon.

For residents with water discoloration or any other concerns please call the Rocky View Utility Corp office at (403) 935 - 8744 as this will help us remedy any problems that may have occured.

Conversion of Residential Water Meters to Electronic Read - 10/February/2009

Approximately 400 residents in the Hamlet of Langdon are on a manual read system. This requires that meter readers must travel from house to house while recording the meter reading by sight, in person. This requires a large amount of resources to ensure that the water invoices go out accurately and on time.

Langdon Waterworks will be setting up appointments to convert to the electronic radio reads in March. The conversion from the manual read to the electronic radio read should take less than 30 minutes if everything is in place and ready to go. Langdon Waterworks personnel will have to enter the house to ensure that the connections to the water meter for the electronic radio read are in place and operational.

This minor inconvenience will save much time in the future months, so we appreciate your co-operation in helping us make our service to you more efficient. The timeline to complete this work is approximately two months.
