As part of their regular maintenance program, the District will be conducting watermain and hydrant flushing starting tomorrow, until the end of November.  The District says this maintenance will improve the quality and service of the water system prior to winter and will ensure the proper operation of hydrants and watermains. 

While the water is safe, the flushing could result in cloudy or coloured water which will clear if a cold water tap is run for a short time. It is recommended that all customers check their water for rust prior to use each day as discoloration of laundry, etc. could occur.
