Annual Fire Hydrant Flushing
Posted on 09/26/2019
Hydrant FlushingResidents may experience water discolouration and pressure fluctuations from September 29 to October 30 as a result of routine watermain flushing to ensure the continued delivery of clean, safe drinking water.  Higher flow rates have the potential of releasing particles of rust from the interior surfaces of older, cast iron water mains.  Although this does not represent a health concern, residents in the affected area may experience a slight red or brown discolouration in their tap water.  Customers are advised to avoid washing laundry if they notice the discolouration.  For more information, please visit the Hydrant Flushing information page.
