2020 Watermain Flushing starts September 8

Posted on Wednesday September 02, 2020


Tay Township’s watermain flushing program is required annually as part of our maintenance program and fire hydrant flow testing requirement.

Flushing Schedule: Monday to Friday only between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Victoria Harbour – September 8th to September 18th (approximately)

Port McNicoll and area – September 21st to October 2nd (approximately)

Waubaushene and Rope – October 5th to October 9th (approximately)

As a result of this work, you may experience a change in pressure and/or some discolouration or sediment in the water. Water use during the scheduled flushing periods should be kept to a minimum. Please avoid doing laundry when flushing is being conducted. If you continue to experience discoloured water after 4:30 p.m. on these dates, allow your cold water to run in the tub for a few minutes. This work will be completed in an expedient manner and regular service will be restored as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Water/Wastewater Division at 705-534-7248 extension 255.
