The water mains that deliver drinking water to the Township of Esquimalt are flushed annually to remove sediment. These water mains are owned and maintained by the City of Victoria.
Weather permitting, the City will begin water main flushing on Monday, February 19 in Vic West and Esquimalt.
During this two month program, some water discoloration can be expected and short periods of low water pressure may be experienced. To prevent any staining from discolored water, run cold water tap until clear. Commercial establishments such as laundromats, beauty salons, and hotels and restaurants are invited to contact Victoria Public Works at 250.361.0400 for further details and advance warning of flushing dates in their specific location.
