Residents Advised of Potential for Low Water Pressure June 17 to June 24 

Jun 17, 2016

Residents of Coniston, Wahnapitae, Markstay and Sudbury, including New Sudbury, may notice low water pressure starting on June 17 and ongoing until Friday, June 24, due to reduced production from the Wanapitei Water Treatment Plant for maintenance work.

To compensate for limited water supply, 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. 

Residents who notice discoloured water once water pressure is restored are asked to run the cold water tap closest to their water meter for several minutes until water is clear of any sediment from water pipes. In the event of prolonged discoloration or low water pressure, residents are asked to call 3-1-1.

The City of Greater Sudbury thanks residents for their patience and cooperation.
