City crews will be flushing the mains from approximately 8 p.m. through to 6 a.m. daily until completed on June 24. 

Notification of areas to be flushed will be posted on the City of Yorkton Facebook page. You may also call the Public Works Department at 306-786-1760 for information between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

During the flushing, the water will contain a considerable amount of rust and sediment, and may be discoloured for several hours. The system pressure will fluctuate during the flushing period.
