East end flushing area for the week of September 2nd to September 5th will be the area generally bounded by Trunk Road to Queen Street East and Shannon Road to Hugill Street.
During flushing activities, there is a high probability some customers outside of the flushing area could also experience discoloured water, potentially up to several kilometers away.
This is due to the fact that any time there is a major change in the rate or direction of flow of water in the distribution system, sediment in the watermains can be disturbed and carried along with the water.
The UDF Program is performed in order to remove sediment from within the city’s watermains and is a recognized industry best practice for improving water quality.
