The RDEK will is gearing up for it's regular maintenance work on the Holland Creek (includes Lakeview Meadows) sanitary sewer mains to remove settled and accumulated material. This maintenance is scheduled for the week of Sepember 23, 2019. During this process, the contractor will be setting up their flushing apparatus at each service access (manhole) in the roadway and releasing pressurized water through the sanitary sewer main pipe to remove buildup.
A bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and toilets due to this maintenance flushing. It is recommended to keep all toilet seats closed and cover any floor drains.
Please note: We would like to remind those residents with homes on the low pressure sewer system (homes with individual sewer pumps) to please flush plenty of water through your system prior to vacating the home for an extended period of time. This practice will prevent sewer odour from forming and releasing upon initial use after sitting idle for weeks or months.
For more information on the flushing program, contact:
Norm Thies, RDEK Senior Operator

The RDEK collects the sewage, which is then treated at the Kinbasket Sewage Treatment Plant.
