Routine Watermain Flushing Over The Next Month May Cause Cloudy, Discoloured Tap Water

KAWARTHA LAKES-Kawartha The City says routine spring watermain flushing for this year is underway and will continue until June 15, 2023.

Flushing in Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon, will begin Tuesday, May 23 with City staff working through these systems until flushing is complete. The dates for Manilla DWS and Sonya DWS will be listed when scheduled.

According to officials 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.

In addition to temporary discolouration, pressure fluctuations during the flushing process may be experienced. These fluctuations will stop once flushing is completed.

Operators from Ontario Clean Water Agency will be flushing the below systems as per the following schedule:

Southview Estates DWS – April 17 to May 5

Norland DWS – May 8 to May 19

Kinmount DWS – May 8 to May 19
