Re: Site Works Re: Watermain Assessment Project
Please be advised that M’Chigeeng Water Works personnel will be out on site with along with representatives of Mueller conducting watermain pipe assessments at various locations throughout the community.
Site works will be completed from Monday April 24/23 – Friday April 28/23
Please be advised that Mueller may have to utilize random fire hydrants throughout the distribution system as part of the pipe assessment.
Customers should be aware of the potential for cloudy, discoloured water as well as water pressure fluctuations during this time. The water may be cloudy or appear white due to air entrapped in the water. This is a temporary situation resulting from flushing sediment out of the watermain pipes. All water system users are cautioned to check the water before use. Should you experience cloudy/discoloured water, continue to run water faucet for a couple minutes to help flush out any sediments.
During this site assessment Water Works personnel may ask random home owners for assistance with respect to access to individual homes to help locate any potential water leaks. This interruption will be kept to a minimum.
M’Chigeeng Water Department apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.
