The city is letting homes and businesses know of low water pressure while work is being done on Riverdale Rd today.

The work could affect areas north of Hwy 61 and west of Mount Forest Blvd, including Mountain Rd.

City workers are expected to be finished by the end of the day.

After the work is finished and pressure restored, residents in the area may notice discolouration of the water from their taps. If there is discolouration, the City advises residents 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, 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.
