From April 27 to May 29 2020, the Department of Environmental Service will proceed to its unidirectional flushing operation of the water supply network. This operation will be performed from Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during this period.

The unidirectional flushing is intended to dislodge deposits in the water mains and preserve high water quality. To do this, the water must be forced in one direction and subsequently be evacuated through fire hydrants.

During this operation, a temporary drop of pressure and/or a reddish colouring of the water may occur. Before any use of water, we recommend that you verify if the water is coloured. If the water is coloured, leave the cold water taps running until the water returns to its usual colour. Additionally, we recommend that you to do your laundry in the evening or the weekend during this period. Note that this discolouration will have no harmful effect on your health.

We thank you for your cooperation and for more information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 613-632-0106, extension 2020.
