The city is implementing a common utility maintenance procedure called ‘flushing’. It involves opening specifically-selected fire hydrants under controlled conditions to scour the inner surface of water distribution pipes. Your water at the tap or hydrant may appear discolored during this program. Although the water does not pose a heath risk, it is best to avoid drinking the water until it runs clear from the tap. There are other precautions you may want to take. Please read the City’s Frequently Asked Questions about the program HERE.
