Watermains are flushed annually during the spring and fall for all four municipal water systems. Annual watermain flushing dates will be advertised on the municipal website, social media and the local newspapers. Flushing watermains is a necessary maintenance procedure which improves the quality of the water by removing sediment from the pipes.
During the flushing in your area, you may experience discoloured water coming from your taps. If this happens, we suggest removing the tap aerators from your taps and flushing the cold water house lines until the water runs clear. You may experience lower than normal water pressure from the flushing activities.
