Public Notice: Annual spring hydrant flushing

The Public Works & Utilities Department has commenced their annual spring hydrant flushing. Hydrant flushing will occur for the month of May.

This routine maintenance program will occur between the hours of 07:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It may result in some temporary minor inconveniences; such as discoloured water or loss of pressure. We also recommend that water users check their water for discolouration before using it to wash light coloured clothing.

The discoloured water is safe for human consumption as it is caused by harmless sediment that has been stirred up in the water mains.  This discolouration will clear up in a short period of time. We apologize for any inconvenience this maintenance program may cause but is necessary to maintain the quality of water.

You may contact 613-283-4124 ext. 3302 for more information.

We thank you for your patience, co-operation and understanding, during this matter.
