Water conservation urged in Langley

Langley residents are being asked to conserve water while a water well and pipes are being repaired.

Holes were found earlier this year in 280 feet of “drop piping” that connects to the city’s main deep water well, according to a press release.

“A video inspection was conducted to evaluate the condition of the well and revealed sentiment buildup,” the city’s water department stated. “The remaining work to clean the well and replace the piping is scheduled in the upcoming weeks.”

Smaller wells are running 24 hours a day to keep up with demand while the work is being done.

“We’re trying to get well No. 1 fixed,” Stan Berryman, public works director, told the Langley City Council Monday evening. “We have to repair the pipes, then it must be disinfected. We hope to get it all done before the July Fourth rush.”
