The 2021 Water Main Flushing Program
Water main flushing program is a technique used to clean water distribution pipes and reservoirs of sediments that build up over time. This is accomplished by strategic manipulation of fire hydrants and valves to force water at high velocities through the system from previously flushed sections.
Saltair’s Flushing dates:
- Monday, March 22nd, 2021
- Friday, March 26th, 2021
- Monday, March 29th, 2021
- Thursday, April 1st, 2021
While this program is underway, short periods of low pressure and discolored water may be expected. Any discoloration is temporary and not a health hazard. Residents are asked to minimize their water consumption if a change in water appearance is noticed. To clear water lines, residents are advised to turn on their cold water tap until the water runs clear.
Should any water problems persist, please call the CVRD’s Engineering Services Department at (250)-746-2530
