Town Hall is aware some residents may be experiencing discoloured water. Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) has been contacted and is currently developing a plan to perform watermain flushing within the municipality in the coming days to perform flushing of the lines.
Over time, minerals and sediments buildup in the watermains which can lead to discoloured water, and at times present as sediment in water delivered to a household. Flushing the watermains removes natural build-up of scale and sediments from water and assists in improving pressure, flow and potential water quality issues like colour. This work ensures our continued commitment to service delivery of clean and safe drinking water.
An update will be provided when flushing is to be expected. Please be advised you may experience pressure changes during the flushing activity.
