Smart Card Override at Water Fill Stations

February 8, 2008 - Due to a short supply of Smart Cards, residents will temporarily be able to use Water Fill Stations without the use of smart cards to access water. 

Several retail outlets selling Smart Cards to tap house users have already sold out their supply of cards.  Until the new supply of Smart Cards arrives, the residential tap houses at Valley Street at Hutton Park Drive and on Hwy 61 at Mount Forest Boulevard will dispense water to residential customers at no charge.

The City's water fill stations switched over to a prepaid `Smart Card' user-pay system last week.  A new supply of cards is scheduled to arrive early next week and will then be available at the following locations: 

Cashier's Office in City Hall, 500 E. Donald Street
AJ's Trading Post, 3677 Hwy 61
Cathy's Discount, 238 Red River Road
Leppanen's Store, 3130 Dawson Road
Municipality of Shuniah Office, 420 Leslie Avenue
Oliver Road Can-Op, 1419 Oliver Road
Oliver Paipoonge Municipal Office, 4569 Oliver Road
South Neebing Variety, 2060 Hwy 61.

We apologize for any inconvenience and tap house users are encouraged to take advantage of the Water Fill Stations while they are accessible at no charge.  For more information about the updated residential Water Fill Stations, contact our dispatcher at 684-2195.
