Is your tap water cloudy?

Feb 16, 2021

District staff will be conducting water main maintenance from March to May 2021. Annual flushing of sediments in the water system is one of the ways the District provides high-quality water to West Vancouver residents.

Sediments may cause temporary cloudiness. Your water is safe—sediments are not harmful.

What to expect

  • you might see periodic discolouration in your water

  • you may wish to run a cold water tap until water is clear

  • chlorination will be increased as necessary, and the water will be dechlorinated before it reaches the drainage system
