Notice: District System Flushing
Crews will be performing annual water main flushing throughout the District from June 8 to July 10, 2015, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. System flushing is required to ensure optimum water quality and removes any sediment deposits that may accummulate over time. During this period of flushing, customers may temporarily experience water pressure that is lower than normal and there may be some minor discoloration of water when crews are working in your area. To avoid any inconveniences, please check the clarity of your water prior to use during the flushing period noted above. If you experience discolouration, run your cold water taps until the water runs clear. We thank your for your understanding a cooperation during this time.
