Please be advised that hydrant flushing will take place over a four week period. Beginning July 6th hydrants will be flushed west of Emma St. Starting July 20th hydrants will be flushed east of Emma St. Hydrant flushing will be finished no later than July 31st.
The routine maintenance program is necessary to maintain the integrity of the water system, remove sediment from water mains, verify the proper operation of hydrants, valves, and maintain firefighting capability.
Residents throughout Town may experience a drop in water pressure and water may be rusty or cloudy due to flushing of the distribution system. If you have rust- coloured water please run your cold water taps only (suggested taps: outside hose, bathtub or laundry tub) for a few minutes until the water is clear.
Please do not use your hot water until you have clean running water again. Refrain from doing laundry especially whites when hydrant flushing is being conducted in your area.
We appreciate your patience during this period and hope that we limit any inconveniences.
Should you have any concerns please contact the municipal office at (613) 395-3380
