Victoria, BC- During planned maintenance work on the morning of May 9, 2016, parts of the Sooke Water Distribution System were reported to have lost pressure. The failure was quickly resolved and the system is working properly. However, as a result of this low pressure event, you may notice small amounts of air in your water lines. Residents are advised to run their taps for a few minutes to resolve this air issue.
