The city is issuing a heads-up that there might be low water pressure in the Mount Forest area.

Work is being done to the main water line by the city that feeds the areas north of Hwy 61, west of Mount Forest Blvd, west and including Mountain Rd.

City crews expect to be done by 6pm tonight.

Once the work is completed and pressure restored, residents in the area may notice discolouration of the water from their taps. If there is discolouration, residents are advised to complete the following steps:

  1. Do not open any HOT water taps.
  2. Open only one COLD water tap (a tap that does not have a water filter system attached to it) and allow the water to flow at a medium flow until the water runs clear.
  3. Once the single COLD water tap is running clear, open all other taps including HOT water taps and flush until all water runs clear.

Running cold water taps for five minutes should clear any discoloured water. If discolouration returns, please repeat steps 1-3.

If residents in the area have any questions or concerns or experience any water quality issues, they are asked to contact Infrastructure & Operations Dispatch at 625-2195.
