Wheatley Emergency Site Reduction Completed APEC 3 Work Under Way

Following the activation of street and traffic lights today, Talbot Road and Erie South have been re-opened. Fences were moved Monday.

The new emergency site map showing boundaries Is attached.

Operations on APEC 3 are underway, and work will continue through the week. A conductor pipe will be driven over the original well and residents may notice hammering sounds that are different from the work that was done on the APEC 2 well.

Property owners have had Orders placed on their buildings from the Chief Building Official.  The Chief Building Official will be rescinding the orders on each property once Municipal Water (PUC), Electrical Authority (ESA), and Natural Gas (Enbridge) have been reinstated by the utility and an inspection by Building Development Services has taken place.

Upon reconnection of the utilities, property owners are to call 3-1-1 and ask to be directed to Building Development Services to schedule an inspection. It is expected that Building Development Services will complete this inspection within 24 hours of receiving the request.

For more details on the reasons for the Order, please refer to page 4 of the Resources and Information for Residents and Business – Building Owners document found, which can be found at:
