Water Main Break Downtown

Aug 14, 2015

There is a water main break downtown on Elgin and Elm Street due to a construction project.  There is a possibility of discolored water and low water pressure in the area.

If you notice discoloured water following flushing operations, let the cold water tap closest to your water meter run slowly for several minutes until the water is clear of any sediments in your water pipes. If water is cloudy, you can let the cold water tap at the highest point in your home run slowly for a few minutes to release trapped air bubbles that cause cloudiness.

Prolonged episodes of discoloured water and/or low water pressure should be reported to the City of Greater Sudbury by dialing 3-1-1.
