Watermain Flushing and Swabbing
Scheduled Watermain Swabbing and Flushing

Flushing of water mains for regular maintenance will be Tuesday April 2 to Friday April 5th and Monday April 15th to Friday April 26th from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day

If you see public works staff working on the hydrants in your area, do not run your water. 

It will take approximately 5 to 10 weekdays to flush the whole system.  Flushing is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. each weekday and continue through to 5:00 p.m. at night to minimize the inconvenience to customers. Flushing may extend after 5:00 p.m. due to circumstances beyond the control of the village. Please plan your household tasks accordingly.

Water pressure and colour may fluctuate while this work is being completed. 

If you see public works staff working on the hydrants in your area, do not run your water.

For your convenience, it is suggested to store some water in advance to use in the event there is an interruption of water pressure or colour. It may also be advisable to shower in the mornings before flushing begins.

Once the flushing is complete, it is recommended to clean the screens on your taps and if necessary let a cold water tap run outside until any coloured water has cleared. You might also want to flush your hot water tank properly.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while this necessary maintenance is completed.
