UNIDIRECTIONAL FLUSHING PROGRAM AND RUST COLOURED WATER

From September 14th to October 30th, 2017

 

Between 8am and 5pm from Monday to Friday, the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA), mandated by the City of Clarence-Rockland, will proceed with the unidirectional flushing of the water distribution system for the next few weeks.

What does the process involve?

 

Unidirectional flushing of the water distribution system is a systematic removal of non-solidified deposits using water velocity. An organized and strategic manipulation of hydrants to be flushed and valves ensures that the source of water used to clean always comes from previously flushed sections, with minimal disturbance to surrounding areas.

Consequently, a slight loss of water pressure and rusty coloured water may be experienced during this period. Unfortunately, the rusty water may cause stains on fabrics during laundry but is no risk for health.

What to do in case of rusty water?

 

The City of Clarence-Rockland suggests that you leave the cold water running until water loses its coloration.

As this is a large scale operation which covers the town of Rockland, the water could be a rusty colour on several different occasions.

We highly recommend that laundry and dishes be done after hours and days as mentioned above as no work is carried out between these hours.


For additional information, please contact Denis Longpré, Environment and Water Manager 613-446-6022 ext. 2299 or Maurice Benoit, Manager, Ontario Clean Water Agency 613-229-9239.

The City of Clarence-Rockland apologizes for all inconveniences associated with this work which is still essential to maintain the quality of our service. We thank you for your understanding.
