Water mains are being flushed in the North Westside Road area.
The work is scheduled to take place until mid-May affecting customers of the Killiney Beach, Westshore Estates, and Upper Fintry/Shalal Road/Valley of the Sun water systems.
Environmental services staff will be flushing mains between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Roadside notice boards are put up in advance of working in the system area.
“It’s important to flush water mains on a regular basis to ensure optimum water quality and remove any sediment deposits that may accumulate over time,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.
When flushing is taking place, water pressure can vary slightly and there may be some slight discolouration in the water.
“Please check your water prior to use. We recommend that you avoid doing laundry when flushing is taking place on your system,” said Smith.
“If you experience discoloration, run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.”
