VALVE EXERCISING & FLUSHING PROGRAM

Posted July 12, 2018

The City Public Works Department is set to begin their Valve Exercising and Flushing Programs beginning mid-July, 2018, and will run until the end of September, 2018. These programs are designed as preventative maintenance programs of the underground water infrastructure. Valve Exercising will not impact residential water supplies.

“Blue Flushing Notices” will be delivered to impacted areas prior to the start of flushing in that area. A flushing duration varies between 15 and 45 minutes. During this time, if residents within the flushing area run water they may observe a discolouration, so please try to avoid running water during the time the PW Crew is in your area. Should the discolouration persists, please run cold water for 15 minutes to 1 hour. If the discolouration still does not clear up in that run time, please contact the PW Department at 306-682-2525, extension 317.   

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as the PW Crew works to ensure the quality of the water service to the City of Humboldt.
