SUBJECT: Water System Flushing

Effective Monday May 30th through to Friday June 10th 2022, the Ontario Clean Water Agency will be flushing the Township’s water system.

This is regular maintenance that is required to ensure the Township’s water is meeting all required standards.

Please be aware of flushing from fire hydrants throughout the Township and expect workers to be on the roads in these areas.

During this time, residents on the municipal water system or accessing the public water tap at the old fire hall may experience low water pressure or discoloured water.

If you experience discoloration in your water, you should run your outdoor faucet, laundry tub faucet or bath or shower faucet until the discolouration clears.

Normal discolouration during this process includes rusty colored water or cloudy coloured water.

Please contact The Department of Public Works with any concerns.
