2018 Watermain Flushing Notice

Jan 17, 2018

The Engineering Department’s Utility Maintenance Section has begun the 2018 annual watermain flushing program. The flushing process may result in your water supply showing sediment and discoloration, otherwise referred to as “dirty water”. If you experience dirty water, please run the cold-water tap (at the highest point in your premises) for approximately 20 minutes or until it clears. Should the problem persist, please contact the Engineering Department at 604-946-3260 or submit a call for service through our website at www.delta.ca/talkdelta.
