CRD announces temporary water shutoff

Many Salt Spring Island residents will temporarily have no water during a rolling maintenance program starting Tuesday, April 2, according to a notice issued Wednesday morning, March 27. 

A schedule indicated work on the Capital Regional District (CRD) annual water maintenance, including flushing of all of its systems, would occur between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. April 2-11.

“During maintenance, you may experience low water pressure and or periods of discoloured water from your tap,” read the CRD notice. “As water services to your property will be impacted during this time, residents may want to set aside some water to meet their individual needs during maintenance.” 

After services are restored, according to the notice, residents may experience a sudden burst of air from your tap or discoloured water. This is normal and should only last a few minutes. If your water is discoloured, run the tap until the water is clear. 

Refer to the maintenance schedule below to see what day and what streets within your water system will be impacted.
