Water Main Flushing Program

What is Water Main Flushing?

Water main flushing is an annual program that serves to clean water distribution pipes of sediments that build up over time and to improve the quality of water in the municipality.

Due to water being forced through the system at high velocities, you may experience periodic low water pressure and water clarity may appear slightly discoloured. Please note that this discoloration is not a hazard to health and can be remedied by running cold water for several minutes.

If you have any concerns, please contact the Public Works Department at 250 836-4105.
