Spray Asphalt Patching

Spray patching on streets will take place in 2022 throughout the City in June. Spray patching uses liquid asphalt to repair alligator cracking to extend the life of our streets. The repairs are scheduled for:

  •  June 7th
  • June 14th, 15th and 16th

While work is underway, the small areas being repaired will be blocked from traffic for a short time. Please be mindful of these work sites and thank you for your cooperation.

Hydrant Repair Work

We generally perform annual 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 area for 2022 will be provided once the work is scheduled.

Annual Watermain Flushing Maintenance

We generally perform annual watermain flushing. 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.
This work is done as part of our regular maintenance plan for our water lines, with a target of 1/3 of the water system per year.
