Dates for flushing in the remaining five systems (Lindsay, Bobcaygeon, Woods of Manilla, Sonya and Fenelon Falls), will be communicated as soon as they are confirmed.

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.

For additional information, please contact us at (705) 324 - 9411.

For more information, please visit the Water and Wastewater pages on the website.
