Water Services Disruptions & Notifications

Watermain Flushing & Hydrant Maintenance

The County’s annual spring program for watermain flushing and hydrant maintenance began on May 4, 2020.

Flushing takes place between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday. Watermains are flushed and hydrants serviced throughout all of The County’s drinking water systems in accordance with the Ontario Fire Code (Ontario Regulation 730/81).

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.

Customers are asked not to approach water operations staff in the field conducting hydrant flushing and to respect physical/social distancing provisions maintaining a minimum distance of 6.5 feet or 2 metres if passing by due to COVID-19.
