As part of New Westminster’s maintenance program, the flushing of the watermains in the areas located between 10th Avenue, McBride Boulevard, Royal Avenue, StewardsonWay and 23rd Street will occur from April 3rd to May 15th, 2017.
Flushing of the watermains is required to remove sediments and to maintain water quality. This may result in your water supply appearing cloudy due to the sediments. Since some staining of laundry may result and some industrial processes may be affected the City recommends the following:
– Run your cold water tap until the water clears up
– Check the water supply before doing laundry
If in doubt, please check the City’s website for daily updates on the streets being flushed or call the Water Department at 604-526-4691 between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm.
Thank you for your cooperation.
