Water main flushing begins in Victoria
If the water coming out of your taps is looking a little fishy, don't be alarmed.
The city began its annual water main flushing program Monday to remove sediment. Byproducts of the flushing, which will rotate through Victoria neighbourhoods over the next two months, include short periods of tap-water discolouration and low water pressure.
To prevent staining from discoloured water, run the cold tap in your bath, shower or sinks until the water is clear.
Commercial establishments such as laundromats, beauty salons, hotels and restaurants can call 250-361-0400 for a schedule of flushing dates in their area.
