We will be flushing hydrants and operating isolation valves in Cardinal and New Wexford from April 6, 2021 to June 1, 2021. Water customers may notice fluctuations in pressure and some discoloration. This is a normal result of the flushing process. We recommend checking your water for discoloration prior to use each day as this could cause damage to laundry, etc. Please contact Environmental Services if you have questions or need assistance at 613-657-3765.
