The Village is improving its sanitary sewer collection system maintenance in 2019. Sewer line flushing will begin this winter and spring to clear out gravel, grease and any other debris that can lead to sewer blockages.
Crews will be flushing the system block by block as time permits from late January to April. Please try to keep your toilets flushed and lids closed, especially in your basement or first floor. The high pressure water used to clean the pipes could backflow into the service pipes to your home.
You may also smell a sewer odour if the force of the flushing clears standing water from drain traps in your home. This odour may be eliminated by flushing your toilets and running water in all your drains, including any floor drains.
Please contact the Village office at 250-336-2291 if you have any question or comments.Search again
