Hydrant Repair Work
From June 21 to August 6 we will be performing maintenance on hydrants throughout the city. While we anticipate minimal disruption to residents, some temporary water discoloration may occur when hydrants are flushed. A map of the work areas is available at the link below.
Annual Watermain Flushing Maintenance
From July 5 to 16, 2021, we will be flushing the water system. This process will create very discolored water as built up sediment is removed from the water lines. Residents should be aware of the following:
- Avoid doing laundry while your street is being flushed, as this process can cause laundry staining
- Avoid using water while flushing is happening in your area, as this can draw the debris filled water into your hot water tank and lines in your house
- Once flushing is done in your area, run a cold water tap until the line runs clear. If your water hasn't cleared after 10 minutes, contact City Hall with your address so we can follow up.
- Flushing may cause temporary drops in water pressure. Minimizing water use where possible will help with pressure throughout the water system.
