The Public Works Department wishes to advise residents that water main flushing is scheduled for the week of September 25th-29th 2017
Water main flushing could cause pressure changes, some discolouration, and sediment in the water from the taps in your home or business. This will be for a short time only. This discolouration is NOT a health hazard, strictly aesthetic.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
- Run an outside tap or cold water tap in your bathtub until the water is clear
- Avoid running hot water until the cold water has cleared up. This is to avoid filling your hot water tank with dirty water
- Kitchen and bathroom faucets usually have screens which may become clogged due to the discoloured water.
- Minimize consumption until water runs clear.
