KAWARTHA LAKES-The municipality is informing residents of Manilla and Sonya that the Water and Wastewater Division will be flushing watermains on October 19, 2021.
A water hauler will be used to accomplish this flushing and the water remains safe to drink according to the City.
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.
The City says in addition to temporary discolouration, pressure fluctuations during the flushing process may be experienced. These fluctuations will stop once flushing is completed.
