Pipe work may temporarily discolour water

NEWS RELEASE

The City of Penticton is advising residents and businesses with properties North of Penticton Ave and East of Government Street that their water may appear discoloured on Friday April 5 while crews conduct work on nearby pipes.

“We aren’t expecting any service disruptions while this work is carried out, however those in the impacted area may notice minor discolouration in their water,” said City Design Supervisor, Tyler Figgitt.  “If residents and businesses in this area do experience any discolouration, as a preventative measure, we recommend running the tap until the water appears clear”.

To reduce the appearance of discolouration, crews will flush the associated lines during the work.  Discoloured water poses no risk to public health.
