Annual District System Flushing
Crews will perform annual water main flushing in the District throughout April and May 2023, 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.
