Sewer Blockage 101 St. & 114 Ave.
Updated December 19
Public works are still working to determine the scale and scope of the blockage in the sewer on 101 St. at 114 Ave. Today emergency locates were called in and equipment was lined up to begin digging. Crews will be doing some excavation around the site this afternoon and early evening, work will resume tomorrow morning as well. During this time a section of roadway along 101 St. will be closed for excavation, however, 114 Ave., 115 Ave., and 103 St. will remain open to public and emergency service vehicles. We continue to ask that residents in the area try to limit water use as much as possible. We will maintain a vacuum truck on-site with operators to prevent sewer backups.
