Routine watermain flushing for drinking water systems – Lindsay and Fenelon Falls

Kawartha Lakes Logo

Kawartha Lakes – Routine watermain flushing in Lindsay (includes Oakwood) and Fenelon Falls will begin Monday September 13, 2021. Municipal operators will be working day shifts 6:30am to 4:30pm until October, then flushing hours will be between 7:30am to 3:30pm.

The schedule for flushing in all other systems will be released when finalized.

The flushing of watermains is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposits in the pipes. There may be brief periods of time when your water becomes cloudy or discoloured; please note that this is not harmful. Simply let your cold water tap run until the water runs clear. Please check your drinking, cooking and laundry water before using.

In addition to temporary discolouration, pressure fluctuations during the flushing process may be experienced. These fluctuations will stop once flushing is completed.
