Potential service disruptions

You may observe some water discolouration during flushing. If you experience discolouration, run cold water until it becomes clear. If your water does not run clear after five minutes, turn off the tap and wait 30 minutes before trying again. You should refrain from doing laundry until any discolouration has cleared.

COVID-19 considerations

The watermain flushing program is being completed to continue to provide safe, clean drinking water to residents and businesses. If you encounter operators completing this work, please maintain suitable physical distancing requirements and refrain from any social interaction. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring everyone’s health and safety during these times.
