Victoria Avenue Water Main Replacement Project

The District will be replacing 130 m of water main on Victoria Avenue, between Brighton Avenue and Granite Street.

The project to install the new water main on Victoria Avenue will now begin on August 29th, 2022. The existing water main will be disconnected from the system, so for the first two weeks, Public Works will be setting up temporary services to provide water to the houses highlighted below. The temporary services will be fed off the water main on Brighton Avenue and will be used for the duration of the project until the new main is connected to the system. Please be aware with temporary services, residents may experience a slight change in water pressure, and with billing, water usage will be an estimated quantity based on the historical use.

We ask that you refrain from parking along this section of roadway when work is underway, and we ask that you park your vehicle(s) on your driveway. This work is part of our on-going infrastructure improvement plan that will improve the integrity of the water supply system for domestic use and for fire-fighting purposes.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, and should you have any questions, please contact the District of Oak Bay’s engineering department at (250) 598-3311 or by email at
