SAFELY RE-OPENING BUILDINGS

When a building or part of a building is unoccupied for more than a month, the risk of water stagnating is higher which can lead to water quality degradation.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR RE-OCCUPANCY

Map your water system

Identify all treatment equipment, pumps, valves, tanks, taps, fountains, showers, etc., and be sure to include any connected food units such as coffee makers and drinking water fountains.

Flush your system

Flush at full force your cold water system first then your hot water system. Start where the water enters the building and work from closest to furthest.

For additional information, we encourage building owners to get more detailed guidance on the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association website at www.cwwa.ca
