Kawartha Lakes Watermain Flushing May Affect Your Water!

Kawartha Lakes Mums Are You Prepared for Spring Flushing?

May 1st to June 11th 2013, Kawartha Lakes water pressure and water clarity may be affected during spring flushing of the watermains, which clears the pipes of build up. How will you prepare?
We will be setting some water aside for drinking and flushing toilets during the time our watermain section is being flushed, and do laundry and showering in the early morning, evening or weekends. If your water becomes cloudy or discoloured, clear your water lines, by letting your cold water tap run until the water flows clear. The City recommends checking drinking, cooking and laundry water before using it. Hmm.. perhaps it would be a good idea to put off flushing the hot water tank until after the watermain flushing is finished too.
