NOTICE: WATERMAIN FLUSHING & HYDRANT MAINTENANCE

September 28 & 29, 2016

  • On September 28 & 29, 2016, between 7:00am and 8:00pm, watermains will be flushed and hydrants will be serviced in the area ranging from Carrying Place to Consecon.
    • All drinking water system users that live in Carrying Place, Consecon and the regions in between will be affected.
  • Detailed information on what to expect when flushing is taking place in your area is available online at pecounty.on.ca. To receive updates on where hydrant flushing is taking place, follow The County on Twitter (@Shire_Hall) and on Facebook (www.facebook.com/PrinceEdwardCounty).
  • While flushing is taking place, customers are asked to avoid excessive water use (Example: running tap water for extended periods, using the washing machine and dish washer simultaneously).
  • Customers in the immediate areas may experience intermittent pressure fluctuations and some discolouration of tap water while flushing is being completed. This does not affect the safety or quality of your water.
  • Once flushing is complete, customers should run the cold water tap closest to the water meter for a few minutes until tap water runs clear. Customers are advised to wait until the water runs clear at the tap before doing laundry or running the dishwasher. Using discoloured water in your washing machine could result in stained laundry.
  • For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward at 613.476.2148 ext. 1023 or info@pecounty.on.ca
