Residents and Businesses Advised of Potential for Low Water Pressure May 6

May 5, 2016

For Immediate release                       Thursday, May 5, 2016

Residents and businesses of the west end and south end of Sudbury may notice low water pressure on Friday, May 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during scheduled maintenance work of the David Street Water treatment plant on Ramsey Lake.

To compensate for limited water supply, residents are asked to reduce water consumption whenever possible.

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.
