Progress made on Columbia Street clean-up

(Penticton BC – April 10, 2018) – Clean-up and repair efforts along Columbia St at Duncan Ave are proceeding following a weather event Saturday, April 7 which saw the storm water system in that area become blocked with silt and mud originating off Carmi Road, east of the City boundary.

“The City expects the responsive work undertaken to date will result in the storm sewer in this neighbourhood returning to service later today”, said Public Works Manager, Len Robson.

As a preventative measure, the City will review the source and cause of the blockage with the goal of determining the feasibility of a long-term solution.
