The City of Parksville’s annual watermain flushing program will begin on February 14 and run through the first week in April.

The city said flushing is an important part of its ongoing maintenance program to ensure the integrity of the water supply system.

Flushing will generally take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Residents should check the city’s website (parksville.ca) for an estimate of the date city crews expect to be in their neighbourhood.

During these times, customers can expect some discoloration of water and intermittent drops in water pressure. The city suggests residents keep a fresh supply of drinking water in your refrigerator.
