Sewer flushing work is being completed in order to clear out gravel, grease and debris that can lead to blockages in sewer lines.
Before flushing begins in your area, you will receive a notice to keep your toilet lids closed, especially in your basement and first floor in order to avoid water splashing from your toilets. The high-pressure water used to clean the pipes can result in backflow through the service pipes to your home.
You may also experience some 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 concerns.
