Annual Fire Hydrant Maintenance Programs

Sep 21, 2016 | Public Works | Public Notice

Orangeville Water System

Cardinal Woods Water System (Mono)

Coles/Island Lake/Purple Hill Water System (Mono)

Users of the above noted water systems should be aware that from September 19 to November 30, 2016 between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week, Orangeville Water Works Staff and contractors will be inspecting and flushing fire hydrants and conducting flow tests as part of an annual fire hydrant maintenance program.

Due to sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using.  If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.

Users of the Orangeville and Mono water systems are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program.  Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.

Your co-operation and understanding during the fire hydrant maintenance programs is appreciated.
