As part of the City’s maintenance program, watermain flushing is required to remove sediments and to maintain water quality across Surrey.

How water flushing may affect your water

When watermains are flushed, the water from your tap may appear cloudy. This is due to the sediments and is safe to drink. Read more about cloudy water.

Some staining of laundry may result and some industrial processes may be affected, we recommend the following:

  • Run your cold water tap until the water clears up
  • Check the water supply prior to doing laundry

If in doubt, call the Water Department at 604-591-4152 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. or 604-543-6700 after hours.
