Planning to pave your driveway?
Did you know that any alterations or modifications to the city boulevard requires an Access Permit and/or a Street Occupancy Permit? Permits are free. They are in place to ensure the boulevards maintain required drainage and that nothing is installed that will affect operations and the safety of the roadway. Alterations made to the boulevard that do not comply with city requirements may be repaired by the City at the adjacent property owners cost. For more info, call or email city operations at 250-427-9660, [email protected], or find all of the information on the city’s website.
Kimberley and Marysville Water Line Flushing
In order to ensure safe drinking water and maintain the Water Distribution System, the city annually flushes water lines in the community using city fire hydrants. The city will be flushing hydrants throughout the community beginning in the Ski Hill area and moving systematically through the city from north to south. This program is expected to start the second week of October and continue for up to five weeks.
Residents may notice discolouration in the water during this process, please note that this is not a public health concern. The city monitors the quality and chlorination of the water during this process to ensure public safety. Flushing and maintenance operations will be underway during the next several weeks. In the event that cloudy water is experienced, turn on an outside tap (preferred) or your bathtub faucet and run until the water clears up. For further information, please contact the Operations Department at 250-427-9660 or [email protected].
