Customers of the Regional District of Central Okanagan Westshore Estates Water System may notice some slight changes in water quality this week.
Starting tomorrow Tuesday, July 30th through Friday, August 2nd between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Environmental Services staff will be flushing mains on the system that serves approximately 250 properties.
Roadside notice boards will be in place while crews are 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.
When flushing is taking place, water pressure can vary slightly and there may be some slight discoloration 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. If you experience discoloration, run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.
Customers will find more information and answers to questions they might have about the Regional District Water Main Flushing Program on the Water Systems webpage www.regionaldistrict.com/water.
The Regional District water systems service approximately 900 properties in the following areas: Falcon Ridge, Killiney Beach, Sunset Ranch, Star Place/Trepanier, Westshore and Upper Fintry - Shalal Road - Valley of the Sun.
