Fall Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing

The Public Works & Utilities Department will be conducting the annual fall water main flushing program during the month of October.   All hydrant flushing activities will be carried out on Monday to Friday during the hours of 07:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This maintenance is quite routine, however the associated flushing activities may result in minor inconveniences such as discoloured water and temporary loss of pressure.  If discoloured water is detected, property owners are advised to run cold water taps for several minutes until the colour clears.  For additional information on the program please contact 613-283-4124 ext. 3302.
