May 10, 2024

 The County of Prince Edward’s watermain flushing and hydrant maintenance program will begin on Monday, May 13 in the Wellington Drinking Water System. Flushing will take place between the hours of 7:00am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday.

  • Watermains will be flushed and hydrants will be serviced throughout the municipality’s drinking water system in accordance with the Ontario Fire Code (Ontario Regulation 730/81).
  • The spring watermain flushing and hydrant maintenance program will take place in the following locations within Wellington:
  • May 13-17, 2024: All addresses serviced by municipal water connected to the Wellington Drinking Water System
  • Detailed information on what to expect when flushing is taking place in your area is available the municipal website. To receive updates on where hydrant flushing is taking place, follow the municipality on Twitter and on Facebook.
  • While flushing is taking place, customers are asked to avoid excessive water use (Example: running tap water for extended periods, using the washing machine and dish washer simultaneously).
  • Customers in the immediate areas may experience intermittent pressure fluctuations and some discolouration of tap water while flushing is being completed. This does not affect the safety or quality of your water.
  • If coloured water has been experienced, customers should run the cold water tap closest to the water meter for a few minutes until tap water runs clear. Customers are advised to wait until the water runs clear at the tap before doing laundry or running the dishwasher. Using discoloured water in your washing machine could result in stained laundry.
