News - Water Main Flushing Oct 18-22

This notice is to inform residents that flushing of water mains has been scheduled for
October 18-22 in Bayshore Village.

Flushing will take place Monday to Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

This process is necessary maintenance of the water distribution system. Potable water is flushed at a high velocity through the water mains to ensure that all piping is refreshed and minor sediment within the pipe is removed. Fire hydrants are used as flush-out points.

While the flushing is underway, short periods of low pressure and discoloured water may be expected. Any discolouration is temporary and not a health hazard. Residents are asked to minimize water consumption and avoid doing laundry if a change in water appearance is noticed. To clear water lines, residents are advised to turn on a cold water tap in a bathtub or laundry tub until the water runs clear.

If water discolouration persists, residents should contact OCWA at 705-484-5600.

The Township of Ramara appreciates the cooperation and understanding of its residents during this program, and we apologize for any inconvenience this program may cause.
