For Immediate Release
VICTORIA, BC – Victoria’s water mains are “flushed” annually to remove sediment and deliver high quality drinking water. Weather-permitting, the City of Victoria will begin water main flushing on Monday, October 1, starting in the areas of Oakland North and Downtown North.
During this two month program, short periods of water discolouration and low water pressure may be experienced. To prevent any staining from discoloured water, run the cold water tap in your bath or shower until the water is 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.
