Calgary water main break: 2 workers injured overnight as water consumption rising again

From Global News.

In a Thursday morning update on the city’s water crisis following a water main break last week, Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek said that repair work on the feeder main has been paused after two workers were taken to the hospital from injuries sustained overnight.

“I have difficult news to share with you this morning,” Gondek said. “Two people were injured on site overnight. Both were taken to hospital and neither are in critical condition.

Gondek added that water consumption rose once again yesterday, this time by 9 million litres. She warned that this “is taking us far over the safe threshold and our supply is lower than it has been in the past few days. This morning we are at a place where we don’t have enough of a cushion for emergencies.”

City of Calgary’s Chief Administrative Officer David Duckworth also said that “I know Calgarians still have many unanswered questions” and that “a thorough post-incident review” is held after every emergency to understand what happened and how future actions can be improved.
