Flushing signs will be posted in your area when crews are working. Please be considerate of crews and drive carefully in work areas.

When crews are flushing in your area you may notice a reduction in water pressure, additional sediment, or discoloration of the water.  During this time, you may choose to boil or not drink the water. Checking your water before doing laundry is strongly advised.

Flushing removes accumulated sand and silt from the water mains and is a required maintenance process used to improve water quality for public health.  If you have any questions about flushing or your water quality, please contact Greater Vernon Water at 250-550-3700.
