Annual Fire Hydrant Flushing
Posted on 08/31/2022
Water flushing graphicThe Annual Fire Hydrant Flushing Program is starting September 6th, 2022 and will continue until September 30th, 2022.  Residents may experience water discolouration  and pressure fluctuations as a result of routine water main flushing.  HIgher flow rates used in flushing have the potential of releasing particles of rust from the interior surfaces of older, cast iron water mains.  Water discolouration from this maintenance task does not represent a drinking water quality concern, however, customers are advised to avoid washing laundry if they notice discolouration.  Residents are encouraged to refer to the hydrant flushing webpage for more information.  We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.  The flushing program is necessary to ensure the delivery of clean, safe drinking water.
