Water Main Break on Latoria Road at Wishart Road Causes Disruption to Water Service

 Capital Regional District Integrated Water Services is currently undertaking an emergency water main repair due to a water main break on Latoria Road at Wishart Road resulting from construction work in the area. Due to this incident, customers in the Latoria Road, Veterans Memorial Parkway, Royal Bay and Metchosin Road areas may be experiencing low pressure or be without water.

Residents in the area with service may notice that their tap water appears cloudy. This often occurs when the regular flow of water through the water mains is disrupted and fine sediments that are picked up in the water main appear temporarily in the tap water. Residents are advised that the water continues to be safe to drink and to run their taps until the water runs clear.

Further water quality and service interruption information will be posted as available.

CRD Integrated Water Services apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
