Fall hydrant servicing will be taking place on the following dates in various areas of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District:
- Falkland – October 1
- Eagle Bay – October 2
- MacArthur Heights – October 2
- Anglemont – October 3 to 6
- Saratoga – October 7
- Sorrento – October 8 to 11
- Cedar Heights – October 12 & 13
Following the hydrant flushing, residents may notice discoloration from sediment in the water system. Discolored water comes from sediment getting stirred up from the high flows during hydrant testing. This discoloration is not harmful, as the water has been disinfected.
Air may also be present in piping. Running a garden hose or cold water bathtub faucet for several minutes should eliminate both air and discoloration.
The CSRD appreciates your patience with any inconvenience this may cause.
