Why are residents notified by the City of their flushing program?

Residents are notified during water main flushing because some may experience a temporary discolouration of water while the water main is being flushed. Any disruption should be short-lived. Residents and businesses along areas where flushing is scheduled to take place will be notified prior to flushing via letters delivered to local businesses and residents, along with signs that will be placed on the road side. So, please keep an eye out for those signs.
