Water Main Flushing

 
IMPORTANT NOTICE

PUBLIC WORKS & ENGINEERING 
Water Main Flushing

The Public Works Department will commence a water main flushing program on Sunday, October 19, 2003 at 6:00 P.M. until 4:00 A.M. Flushing is required to remove the rust and sediment that has accumulated in the water mains during the low flows experienced in the winter months. City crews will be flushing the mains from 8:00 P.M. through to 4:00 A.M. for four or five nights until completed. Flushing will begin in Weinmaster Park and southwest areas of the City on the first evening and move towards City centre thereafter.

During flushing, the water will contain a considerable amount of rust and sediment, and may be discolored for several hours. The system pressure will fluctuate during the flushing period. Both the sediment and the low pressure can cause problems in the operation of plumbing fixtures, especially air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. Doing laundry is not recommended, as the discolored water will stain clothing. For this reason, it is advisable not to use water if it is discolored unless it is absolutely necessary to do so.

Residents who live in the areas being flushed should collect containers of water beforehand for drinking and cooking, before the flushing program starts. Residents should use as little water as possible, and should avoid drawing water into their homes. It's best not to use your washing machine or dishwasher until the water color returns to normal.

If further information is required, please contact the Public Works and Engineering Departments at 786-1760 or 786-1730 between 8:30 A.M. and 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday.
