Cloudy Water


Some residents may be experiencing cloudy or murky water coming through their tap. This discolouration is due to naturally occurring organics and manganese in our raw water supply that have settled in the distribution lines. Occasionally, the system gets stirred due to a sudden change that may shock the system such as the use of a fire hydrant or water main break. If you are experiencing cloudy water, run the water until it clears up. The water is safe to drink, however the sediment can cause staining (toilets for example) and may have an unpleasant taste. We apologize for the inconvenience – if the issue persists, please contact Public Works at 250-774-2541 ext. 2093
