Water Main Flushing in Esquimalt Starting February 11

February 5, 2014

Starting on Tuesday February 11, the City of Victoria will be doing its spring water main flushing to remove sediment and maintain high quality drinking water. As Esquimalt’s water lines are owned and maintained by the City of Victoria, the Township will be included in this spring flushing.



During the flushing, some water discolouration can be expected, along with short periods of low water pressure. To prevent any staining, run cold tap until water is clear. Commercial establishments such as laundromats, beauty salons, hotels and restaurants can contact City of Victoria Public Works at 250.361.0400 for further details and advance warning of flushing dates.



In most cases flushing will be carried out during the day between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. The program should be completed by April 30.
