Decommission of the Power House

UBC Water Supply Centre, the new water pump station near Martha Piper Plaza is now completed. The old water mains at the Power House is scheduled to be disconnected between April 9 and April 14, 2021.

During this transition, there will be changes to the flow of water in UBC’s pipes, however, disruptions are not anticipated. As the old system gets turned over to the new, there may be some cloudiness or discoloration in the water.

In the event that you see water from a tap that it is not as you regularly see it, please run your cold water tap, or flush a toilet to help remove the water from the system. The discoloration in the water may not be aesthetically pleasing, but is safe to use for consumption or food preparation.
