Public Notice – Spring Hydrant Flushing Begins May 4

May 6, 2020

The Public Works & Utilities Department will be conducting their annual spring valve and hydrant maintenance program, along with hydrant flushing between May 4, 2020 and May 31, 2020.

This routine maintenance program will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. and may result in some temporary minor inconveniences, such as discoloured water or loss of pressure. We recommend that water users check their water for discolouration before using to 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, and will clear within a short time period. We apologize for any inconvenience this maintenance program may cause but it is necessary to maintain the quality of water.

For more information please contact 613-283-4124 ext. 3302.
