Fall Water Main Flushing
NOTICE OF WATER MAIN FLUSHING
The Water Utility will be conducting routine water main flushing throughout the Town of Mahone Bay as follows:
9:00 PM to 6:00 AM - Tuesday November 15th, 2022
9:00 PM to 6:00 AM - Wednesday November 16th, 2022
9:00 PM to 6:00 AM - Thursday November 17th, 2022
What to expect:
• Reduced Water Pressure
• Discoloured Water
• Intermittent Service Disruption
What to Do:
• We recommend closing the main shut-off valve and water supply valve to hot water heaters; this will help avoid having discoloured water enter the hot water heater and help avoid having heating elements burn out.
• Consider turning off booster pumps during flushing to avoid equipment damage.
• Check for discoloured water prior to doing laundry or running the dishwasher. Suspended material causing the discolouration can permanently stain fabrics. To check, run a cold-water faucet, if discoloured water is present, flush your system by continuing to run a cold-water faucet until the water runs clear.
The Town of Mahone Bay regrets any inconvenience created during water main flushing. Water main flushing is a semi-annual maintenance procedure used to clean our water mains.
