Damage to Bruderheim's water truck fill was worse than first expected.
 
When the fill was struck by a large vehicle in the first weekend in March, repairs were originally planned to be completed in two weeks or less.
 
"Right now the way it looks, probably the first week in April before we have it back and running," said director of public works, Dennis Tomuschat.
 
The damage was found to be more extensive than originally assessed.
 
"There was more than just piping damage, there was structural damage, there was enough force on those pipes that it actually did structural damage to the wall of the building. Our engineers had to take another look at how we're going to attack this and get it rectified," added Tomuschat.
 
In the meantime, residents are being asked to use water truck fills by Lamont, Chipman and Gibbons.
