Watermain Flushing

The Town of Sidney will commence the mandatory annual flushing of watermains in February 2015 with completion anticipated by the end of March 2015.  Flushing will begin in the southern areas of Sidney and proceed north.  Temporary discolouration of water and/or low water volume may occur as a result of this activity.  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 in your vicinity for those persons with special requirements for water clarity.  Please contact the Public Works Department at 250-656-1034 if you require notification.  The Town of Sidney does not accept any responsibility for damage caused by low water volume or the use of discoloured water.  We therefore advise consumers to be on the alert for reduced water volume and/or temporary discolouration of water.
