Watermains to get the royal flush

The City of Campbell River will flush watermains beginning the week of April 5 and continuing through the next two months

The City of Campbell River will flush watermains beginning the week of April 5 and continuing through the next two months.

Watermain flushing removes sediment that has accumulated in the pipes of the water distribution system.

Watermain flushing is an integral part of protecting and enhancing the quality of Campbell River’s drinking water.

Some things for Campbell River residents to keep in mind during the watermain flushing period:

When flushing is underway, residents may notice short periods of low pressure and discoloured water.

Low pressure and water discolouration will be temporary.

Water remains safe to use and drink during watermain flushing.

To avoid staining your laundry or getting sediments in your household piping, please minimize your water use if discoloured water is noticed.

To clear your water lines, turn on your cold water tap until the water runs clear.

Questions? Contact the City’s Operations Centre at 250-286-4033.
