Watermain & Hydrant Flushing in Bath & Amherstview
During the warmer months of the year, Utilities staff undertake a program of flushing all watermains in the Township's distribution systems. This annual program is scheduled to begin as follows:
- Amherstview starts June 18, 2018
- Bath starts June 26, 2018
Flushing the watermain can stir up sediments that normally occur in water pipes. Sometimes this can result in a brown or yellow tinge to your water. If that occurs, please turn on your cold water taps and allow them to run until the water turns clear. If it doesn't clear within ten minutes, please contact the Engineering Clerk at 613-386-7351, ext. 116.
