Fire Hydrant Flushing will be going on throughout the Town for the entire month of May. Please beware and slow down when passing workers!
Flushing removes build-up in fire hydrants and water mains and brings freshwater into pipes that are used infrequently.
In areas where fire hydrants are flushed, residents may notice a temporary discolouration of water and/or a temporary reduction in water pressure. The discoloration is not harmful and can be resolved by running cold water through a faucet until any sediment is flushed out.
