The District of North Saanich advises residents that flushing of water mains will commence March 4 and continue until May 31, 2019. This schedule is subject to change as water main flushing is weather dependent. Water main flushing occurs annually throughout the District to remove sediment and maintain satisfactory water quality within the distribution system.
Temporary water discolouration and/or low water pressure may occur as a result of this activity.This water discolouration is not a health hazard and may require you to clear your water lines by turning on your cold water tap until the water runs clear.
Upon request, the District will provide advance warning of flushing in your vicinity for persons with special requirements for water clarity. Please contact the Public Works department at 250-655-5480 if you require advance notification.
The District does not accept responsibility for damages caused by low water volume or the use of discoloured water. We therefore advise consumers to be on the alert for reduced water volume and/or temporary discolouration of water.
