Damage coin box

Vandalism behind temporary shutdown of Pincher Creek standpipe

An apparent thief or thieves targeting the coin box at the Pincher Creek water standpipe, operated by the MD of Pincher Creek, managed to put the entire unit out of commission.

In a social media post Friday morning, the MD reported that due to vandalism, the standpipe is currently not operational.

At this point, there’s no indication how long it will take to get it back up and running.

Those needing potable water will need to travel to Cowley.

Unlike the MD’s standpipes in Pincher Creek and near Beaver Mines, which are both lower and upper fill, the Railway Avenue water station in Cowley is only upper fill.
