Comox water main flushing

  • Apr. 13, 2016 7:00 p.m.

The Town of Comox Public Works Department will be proceeding with the annual flushing of water mains and maintenance of all fire hydrants.

This program will commence on Monday, April 25 and should be completed by Friday, May 27. All work will take place from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

This program may result in temporary but harmless discoloration of the water. Should this occur, running a cold water tap for a period of time will help to restore water quality to normal. Where practical, residents should avoid washing laundry during operational hours as to do so could result in discoloration of clothes.

FMI call Brett Green, Public Works foreman, at 250-339-5410.
