Marysville Water Distribution System Flushing
During the next few weeks, the city will be performing flushing and maintenance of the water lines in the Marysville area. In order to ensure safe drinking water and to maintain the water distribution system, the city annually flushes water lines in the community using city fire hydrants.
Residents may notice discolouration in the water while this activity is being undertaken. This discolouration is not a public health concern. The city continues to monitor the quality of the water during this process. In the event that cloudy water is experienced, turn on an outside tap (preferred) or run your bathtub until the water clears. For further information, please contact the Operations Department at 250-427-9660.
