Public Notice: Hydrant flushing starting Oct. 4

Hydrant flushing starting Oct. 4

The Public Works & Utilities Department will be conducting their annual HYDRANT FLUSHING program starting October 4th and continuing through the month of October.

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.
