The City of Parksville will soon begin its annual water main flushing, which will run from mid-February through April.

Flushing will generally take place between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, according to a media release by the city.

“Flushing is an important part of our ongoing maintenance program to ensure the integrity of the water supply system,” reads the release.

During these times, residents can expect some discolouration of water and intermittent drops in water pressure, the city said.

The city asks customer to follow these guidelines while water main flushing is underway:

  • Keep a fresh supply of drinking water in the refrigerator;
  • Check for discolouration of water before doing laundry;
  • If water is discoloured, run an outside tap (after 3:30 p.m.) until the water clears.
