Innerkip Water Main Flushing - April 4th & 5th

Posted in the Announcements page on 04/04/2016 11:53:04 on Monday, April 04, 2016.
The water system will be flushed on Monday, April 4th, 2016 to Tuesday, April 5th, 2016, during the day, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

When water mains are flushed customers may experience discoloured water or sediment in the areas being flushed. If you avoid water use during the flushing, it will help prevent dirty water being drawn into the household lines. The iron in the water is an aesthetic problem and is not a health concern.

If you get discoloured water, an outside tap or a laundry faucet not connected to a water softener or filter should be turned on after the work is completed, in order to flush the household lines. Please allow sufficient time for the water to clear.

If you continue to have problems with the water please notify us at the County of Oxford, Public Works Department, at 1-866-537-7778. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the flushing program.
