Possibility of Discoloured Water - south, west end

Jun 22, 2015

Maintenance work at the David Street Water Treatment Plant will result in a period of limited water availability and possibly temporary low water service pressure. The work is scheduled from Monday, June 22 at 1 p.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 24. When water service is restored, area residents and businesses in the city's south and west ends may notice discoloured water.

To clear discoloured water, residents are asked to run the cold water tap that is closest to their water meter for approximately 15 minutes to clear sediments from house hold plumbing. A prolonged period of discoloured water or low water pressure should be reported to the City of Greater Sudbury by dialing 3-1-1.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to limit water consumption to essential needs only. It is requested that residents not use water for lawn watering, washing vehicles, or washing driveways.
