BOWEN ISLAND MUNICIPALITY
Water Main Flushing
As part of its regular water system maintenance program, the Municipality will flush water mains in Blue Water Park, Bowen Bay, King Edward Bay, Cove Bay, Eagle Cliff, Hood Point and Tunstall Bay from April 6 to May 15, 2009.
This is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposits in the pipes. Flushing will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in most neighbourhoods.
Every effort will be made to ensure that water quality is not affected but some turbidity and higher than normal chlorine concentrations may be present for short periods of time. Running your tap briefly should clear this up. Also, there may be temporary pressure fluctuation during flushing.
This will not pose a health hazard. Municipal staff will try to minimize any inconvenience. For more information call Bob Robinson, Acting Public Works Manager Operations at 604-947-4255.
It is recommended that water users with compromised immune systems ensure that their drinking water is boiled, filtered or distilled.
