2004 Water Main Flushing Program

  
The Public Works Department will commence a Water Main Flushing Program on Sunday, APRIL 25, 2004 at 6:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. Flushing is required to remove the rust and sediment that has accumulated in the water mains. City crews will be flushing the mains from approx. 6:00 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, refrigeration equipment, and water softners. 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 Department at 786-1760 or 786-1730 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
