Annual District System Flushing
Crews will perform annual water main flushing in the District throughout September 2022, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
System flushing is required to ensure optimum water quality and removes any sediment deposits that may accumulate over time.
Customers of GEID are advised that during these periods, you may experience lower than normal water pressure and some temporary discoloration when crews are working in your area. To avoid any inconvenience, please check your water clarity prior to use. If you experience discoloration, run your cold water taps until the water runs clear.
For any further information, please call the GEID office at 250-763-6506.
Irrigation Service Shut Offs
Our irrigation water licencing permits irrigation from April 1rst through to September 30th annually. GEID crews are scheduled to be shutting off irrigation services for our seasonal agricultural customers starting Monday October 3, 2022. Please note: It is the customer’s responsibility to protect the meter and any related backflow preventer from freezing. Please ensure your gate valve is open at the irrigation meter to avoid any damage to the valve.
If you require your shut-off to occur outside of the above timeframe for extraordinary circumstances, you may apply for an alternate shut-off time (weather permitting) by filling out an application form, available HERE and returning it to email@example.com for consideration.
