Area D will be feeling flush in the first week of November

Watermain flushing will take place mainly between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday

The Strathcona Regional District will be conducting hydrant servicing and watermain flushing throughout the Electoral Area D and Craig Road water systems beginning the first week of October 2012 and continuing until the first week of November 2012.

Watermain flushing will take place mainly between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.

During these times, customers may experience the following:

  • Intermittent drops in water pressure
  • Some discolouration of water

Water remains safe to use and drink during watermain flushing. To avoid laundry staining or sediment accumulation in household piping, water use should be minimized if discoloured water is noticed.

If water is found to be discoloured, run an outside tap after 4 p.m. until the water runs clear.

Watermain flushing is an important preventative maintenance activity that ensures the integrity of the water system including the fire hydrants and valves. Flushing is also undertaken to remove sediment from the system and to maintain water clarity and quality.

Additional information, including frequently asked questions, is available on the Regional District website ( The Strathcona Regional District apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
