Cranbrook, BC (May 9, 2019) – Water utility customers can expect to experience some minor water discolouration periodically over the next few months, as the city begins its annual water main flushing program.
Operations are set to begin Thursday May 9 and Friday May 10, starting with the main water trunk line from the Phillips Reservoir.
Some customers may experience discolouration in the water for a short period while this flushing work is done. If you do have discolouration, please run your cold water tap until the water runs clear. This discolouration is not a public health concern.
The annual flushing program is done each year to ensure water mains are clear of sediment in order to provide the best water quality possible to your home and business. The City will provide updates regularly, so you know where the flushing program is moving to next.
The City of Cranbrook appreciates the patience and understanding of our residents and businesses as this important flushing program unfolds.
