Watermain Flushing June 12 to 23

June 07, 2017   

The City will be flushing water mains in the Upper Lonsdale area from Chesterfield on the West side to the Tempe Heights neighbourhood on the East side and South to parts of East 19th St. starting Monday June 12 to Friday June 23, 2017 - 9:00AM to 4:30PM.

Water main flushing is part of an ongoing maintenance program to provide dependable water service and improve water quality. Residents in the designated flushing area, as well as surrounding streets, may experience cloudy water or low water pressure at their taps. This does not pose a health hazard. It is recommended that the residents affected by this work refrigerate drinking water ahead of time. It is also recommended that home owners refrain from washing clothes during the stated flushing hours and until the cloudiness disappears.

During the flushing, the City will monitor water quality by taking water samples throughout the area. Water clarity should return to normal within four to six hours.

The City of North Vancouver recognizes the inconvenience this work may cause and thanks you for your understanding and cooperation

City contact for the flushing is:  Mark Trinkl at 604-987-7155.
