Annual Water Main Flushing

Sidney Crest small 89 x 96 

The Town of Sidney will commence annual flushing of water mains in February 2019 with completion anticipated by the end of March 2019. The annual flushing is required to ensure ongoing health of the water system. Flushing will begin in the southern areas of Sidney and proceed north. The Town of Sidney advises consumers to be on the alert for possible temporary discolouration of water. This discolouration is not a health hazard. To clear your water lines, turn on your cold water tap until the water is clear. Upon request, we will provide advance warning of flushing for persons with special requirements for water clarity. Please contact the Public Works Department at 250-656-1034 if you require notification or if you have any additional questions.
