In order to provide the community with safe potable water, the District will be doing a system flushing starting Monday April 17, 2017 through to Sunday April 30, 2017. There will be chlorine in your water and pressure fluctuations. This procedure is in accordance with the Ministry of Health Guideliness.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
