Water Main Flushing Finished April 25, 2020
- April 17, 2020

Flushing of the watermains is now complete for this spring.

Now that flushing is complete, it is recommended to clean the screens on your taps and if necessary let a cold water tap run outside until any coloured water has cleared. You might also want to flush your hot water tank properly.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Flushing of water mains for regular maintenance will begin Tuesday April 21st at 3:00 p.m.

Water pressure and colour may fluctuate while this work is being completed. 

If you see public works staff working on the hydrants in your area, do not run your water. 

It will take approximately 5 to 10 weekdays to flush the whole system.  Flushing is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. each weekday and continue through to 11:00 p.m. at night to minimize the inconvenience to customers. Flushing may extend after 11:00 p.m. due to circumstances beyond the control of the village. Please plan your household tasks accordingly.

For your convenience, it is suggested to store some water in clean containers in advance, especially for dinner preparation, in the event there is an interruption of water pressure or colour.  It may also be advisable to shower in the mornings before flushing begins.

Once the flushing is complete, it is recommended to clean the screens on your taps and if necessary let a cold water tap run outside until any coloured water has cleared. You might also want to flush your hot water tank properly.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while this necessary maintenance is completed.
