Annual flushing of the water system

The water system throughout the entire city will be flushed between April 14 and August 1. Work will take place Sunday to Friday, between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.

This annual system maintenance work flushes out naturally occurring water mineral deposits from the interior walls of pipes. As the particles detach, this could cause the water to become discoloured.

Here are a few recommendations:

  • Avoid washing your clothes or dishes between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
  • If your water is cloudy or coloured, run the cold water tap until the water is clear again.
  • If your clothes are stained by cloudy or coloured water, you can pick up an easy-to-use cleaning product at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard).

You will receive a notice on a door hanger a few days before maintenance begins to inform you when work is in progress.

Thank you for your cooperation.
