Water System Hydrant Flushing Program


Important Notice

ENWIN Water Operations will be flushing water hydrants in the area bounded by Central Avenue to the west, Riverside Drive to the north, E.C. Row Expressway to the south and Jefferson Boulevard to the east. This annual system maintenance will take place between June 15 and September 18, 2020, from 8:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.

For daily information about where flushing is taking place, customers can follow ENWIN on our Twitter feed, @ENWINUtilities, or see the Hydrant System Flushing Map.

Customers located in the targeted flushing areas may notice some mild discolouration and sedimentation while the flushing is taking place. ENWIN assures customers that this is not harmful and should clear up after running their cold water tap for several minutes.

ENWIN recommends that customers follow the guidelines listed below, when system flushing is underway nearby:

  • Fill some containers with water you may require during the duration of the work.
  • Laundry may be damaged due to discolouration of the water. Please avoid doing laundry until the flushing has completed work in your neighbourhood for that day.
  • Try not to run any hot water taps, as some discoloured water and sediment may be drawn into your hot water heater.
  • When the system flushing is finished and you notice discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.

Any homeowner who continues to see discolouration in their water 24 hours after flushing has completed should call ENWIN at 519-255-2727. Customers with additional questions regarding the flushing operations can contact ENWIN at info@enwin.com.
