Welcome to WUC
At the Windsor Utilities Commission, our mandate is to deliver an abundance of clean, reliable and safe water that enhances the quality of life of Windsor's residences and businesses.
We are proud to deliver tap water into our customers' homes that exceeds Ontario's water quality standards. Clean water plays a fundamental role in helping to establish the quality of our lives.
Relationship Between ENWIN Utilities Ltd. and Windsor Utilities Commission (WUC) - The Windsor Utilities Commission (WUC) has outsourced all of its operations to ENWIN through a Water System Operating Agreement (WSOA). These services help to produce, deliver and maintain WUC assets. WUC is the legal owner of the water assets. They regulate water rates, water quality and conservation efforts. WUC's focus is on rate control, cost control and compliance, making the management of these essential functions easier without the additional responsibility of having to run a highly technical business on a day-to-day basis.

System Flushing Operations
ENWIN will be performing flushing operations on the water system throughout the City of Windsor on a predetermined, weekly basis starting in May and ending October. The area targeted will be advertised in the Windsor Star in the Saturday paper immediately prior to commencing. The next area targeted will be bound by the Detroit River to the north, E.C. Row to the south, Janette, Elm and Dougall to the west and Howard Avenue to the east. Flushing will take place from June 18 to July 30, 2018, Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8 am and 3 pm daily.
Customers located in the targeted flushing areas may experience some mild colouring and sedimentation in their water during the period that the flushing is occurring. This is NOT harmful and should clear up quickly. We ask that you follow the guidelines listed below:
- 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 experience discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.
If you have any questions regarding the flushing operations in your neighbourhood, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
