Fire hydrant servicing from October 17 - 26

A fire hydrant located in Blind Bay.

The CSRD will be conducting semi-annual servicing of approximately 410 fire hydrants in various fire suppression service areas in Electoral Area C, D and F.

The planned maintenance schedule is:

  • Falkland - October 17
  • Anglemont - October 18 to 20
  • Saratoga - October 20
  • Eagle Bay - October 21
  • MacArthur Heights - October 21
  • Sorrento - October 22 to 24
  • Cedar Heights - October 25
  • Sunnybrae - October 26

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.
