The City of Parksville has started conducting its annual watermain flushing program this month and it will run through until April.
It will take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
During those times, residents can expect some discolouration of water and intermittent drops in water pressure.
Please follow these guidelines during the water main flushing program:
• Keep a fresh supply of drinking water in your refrigerator.
• Check for discolouration of water before doing laundry.
• If your water is discoloured, run an outside tap (after 3:30 pm) until the water clears.
Flushing is an important part of the city’s ongoing maintenance program to ensure the integrity of the water supply system.
