November Water Main Flushing Update

Victoria's water mains are “flushed” annually to remove sediment and deliver high quality drinking water. 

Between November 18 and November 22, water flushing will occur in the area:
•  East of Cook Street and west of Fernwood Avenue and north of Bay Street and south of Acton Street and Ryan Street.

During the flushing, some water discoloration can be expected and short periods of low water pressure may be experienced.  To prevent any staining from discolored water, run cold water tap until clear. 

Commercial establishments such as laundromats, beauty salons, hotels and restaurants are invited to contact Public Works at 250.361.0400 for further details and advance warning of flushing dates in their specific location.
