Discolored or low pressure water to show up in Nanaimo homes

Your water could be a bit discolored or low pressure.

Starting from the south end and moving north, the City of Nanaimo is beginning its annual water main flushing program.

“Sediment can collect over time in water mains and flushing them helps to clear it out,” said Public Works and Engineering General Manager Bill Sims. “This is a routine maintenance activity to ensure continued clean, healthy water is delivered to everyone.”

If you see any discoloration in your water during the flushing, you’re asked to run cold water until it turns clear. 

The city says the discoloration is temporary and not a health hazard to residents, however it’s recommended you minimize your water usage until you see it becomes clear again.
