2019 Hydrant Flushing

Posted On Thursday July 11, 2019

Staff have begun flushing Fire Hydrants as part of our 2019 annual maintenance program.  Flushing is conducted from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The planned area of flushing for July 17, 2019 includes Victoria St., Oak Meadows, Thompson St., Collingwood St., Parker St., Nelson St., Trowbridge St., Sykes St. N and Bayfield St.

During this time you may notice a slight discoloration or cloudy appearance of the water, and reduced pressure if you are using water during the flushing process. The water could be flushed onto the road surface and may leave puddles after flushing has been completed.

If you experience turbid or coloured water, please run the cold water tap in the bathtub to clear the service lines. This is the recommended tap to run the water through as it does not have a screen to collect any material that may be in the system.
