As part of its regular water system maintenance program, the Municipality will be flushing water mains in all Municipal water systems, rotating through each neighbourhood.
Water main flushing usually takes place in spring and fall when there is sufficient water in the affected water systems.
Most areas are flushed Monday to Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. This procedure is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposits in pipes, and it does not pose a health hazard.
While the water is not turned off during the flushing process, temporary water interruptions may occur and your water pressure could be low for periods of time. Every effort will be made to ensure that water quality is not affected, but some turbidity and higher than normal chlorine concentrations may be present for short periods of time. Running your tap briefly should clear this up.
Residents are advised to have additional water storage for urgent use during this time.
Reminder: it is recommended that people with compromised immune systems ensure their drinking water is boiled, filtered or distilled.
