Spring maintenance operations
In recent weeks, the City of Pointe-Claire has begun its spring maintenance operations.
Our crews are working hard to repair streets that were damaged this winter. Temperature variations and thawing cause damage and lead to potholes.
Street and sidewalk cleaning
Street and sidewalk cleaning operations have been underway since last week. The purpose of this cleaning operation is to remove dirt and debris that has accumulated over the winter using a mechanical sweeper or hose.
Flushing of the water system
From April 10 to August 1, the water system in the entire territory of the City will be flushed, with work taking place from Sunday to Friday, between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. This annual maintenance operation flushes out naturally occurring water mineral deposits from the interior walls of pipes. You will receive a notice on a door hanger to inform you a few days before maintenance begins.
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 discoloured, run the cold water until the water is clear again.
- If your clothes are stained by cloudy or discoloured water, you can pick up an easy-to-use cleaning product at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard).
To facilitate these operations, the City would ask residents to avoid parking their vehicles on the street. We thank dog owners for helping to keep our city clean by picking up their pet’s waste at all times.
