Notice of watermain flushing

Notice details

Watermain flushing will take place in Coldwater beginning Monday, June 5 through to Friday, June 16. Flushing will take place between the hours of  7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 

Watermain flushing is an important preventative maintenance activity that:

  • removes mineral and sediment build up from the watermains
  • allows Severn to deliver the highest quality water possible to our community
  • ensures proper operation of the hydrants

Some discolouration of water or intermittent drops in water pressure may result from the flushing.

Residents are advised to:

  • keep a fresh supply of drinking water in your refrigerator
  • check for discolouration before using the water for laundry or cleaning
  • if your water is discoloured, run the tap until the water clears

Once the water has cleared and is no longer discoloured, you can resume all regular activities, including drinking. Drinking small quantities of discoloured water does not present a health concern.
