Bralorne Water System Flushing

Public Notice Bralorne Water System

Flushing of water system – in response to pump failure earlier this week

Wednesday, June 7th 2017 - BETWEEN 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM

The failure of the water pump caused the reservoir and the distribution pipes to empty.  The refilling of the pipes caused loosening of the hard water scaling on the interior of the pipes as well as stirring up any sediment that was inside the pipes.  To bring the water quality back up to par, staff will be flushing the water system this afternoon and early evening.

DISRUPTIONS TO WATER SERVICE ARE EXPECTED TO BE MINIMAL

You may experience some of the following in a very limited capacity:

  • Water pressure may be temporarily reduced.
  • You may experience discoloration of water and some sediment. If so, run water up to five to ten minutes - this should clear it up.
  • Refrain from using a washing machine during this time.
  • There may be temporary water interruptions.

If you have any questions or required additional information please contact the SLRD, Utilities & Environmental Services department at 604-894-6371.
