Prince George, B.C.-  The watering ban that  has been in place since Monday will be lifted  tonight as planned.

The $3 million  dollar project connects two of the city’s main water wells while the installation  is complete, the system is being tested to ensure everything is working as it should.

The outdoor watering ban is expected to be lifted at midnight tonight, which means a return to the normal watering restrictions (even house numbers on even days, odd house numbers on odd days and no sprinkling at all between noon-5pm)

The project to connect the two city wells – PW605 in Wilson Park and PW660 at Fish Trap Island, both along the Nechako River – took a year to complete. The project builds redundancy between the two wells, which provide most of the water for the Hart, throughout the Bowl, Blackburn, and College Heights.  The project will allow the City to switch from one to the other  in the event  either system  develops a problem.

    City of PG employees are invincible and above reproach so they don’t need to follow WCB rules

    Do you mean “shoring”? The slope looks good for this spot. I’m sure it falls within the regs.
