Ponoka crews have stopped the water flow and are working on repairing the water main break.
The Town of Ponoka suggests that if residents see discolouration in their water to let the taps run until they’re clear. The water pressure has also returned to normal so residents can use their taps.
Ponoka public works and water crews are attempt to stem the tide on a water main break, which may affect water pressure.
The break occurred in the area of 44 Avenue, between 64 Street and Highway 2A, near the VJV Auction Mart.
In a Facebook post, the town requests people avoid the area if at all possible in order to give crews freedom to move as they work to stop the water.
At the moment, crews are dealing with a number of frozen water valves as they try to cut of the supply of water to the broken main.
Residents are asked to conserve water as they will likely notice a drop in the water pressure in their homes.
The town will be providing updates as they become available.
