Fire Hydrant Flushing

The Town has scheduled fire hydrant flushing during the period of September 26th – 30th, 2016.  In the event of a water main break during flushing, flushing will stop to repair the break.  Fire hydrants are flushed to test the hydrants and to remove sediment (minerals) from the water distribution system.  Citizens may experience fluctuations in water pressure and discoloration in water.  Please take necessary precautions when washing clothes.  Water samples are taken weekly at multiple points throughout the treatment and distribution system to ensure that water is safe to consume.  Water samples are sent to Alberta Health and the results are publicly posted on http://environment.alberta.ca/apps/RegulatedDWQ/.  Other factors throughout the year can cause fluctuations in water pressure and diminished water quality including power outages, large draws on water (fires, water main breaks, etc.), fire hydrant flushing, water well repair and maintenance, low water tables with high mineral content, recharging of green sand filters, etc.

Please Note: If a Water Ban is put in place Hydrant Flushing will be scheduled for a later date.
