The District of North Saanich advises residents that flushing of
watermains will commence February 6 and continue until May 31,
2017. Watermain 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.
