Notice to residents in the Municipality of North Middlesex

The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) will commence the 2024 Spring Flushing of watermains for the Municipality of North Middlesex Mondays to Fridays for the following period:

April 8th, 2024 – May 31st, 2024

You may experience discoloured water coming from your tap. If this happens, we suggest you try the following:

  • remove the tap aerators off your taps and flush the cold water house lines until it runs clear.
  • flush out your hot water tanks. This is to remove the accumulated iron that precipitates out in the tank; this iron may also decrease the efficiency of your water tank.

You may experience lower than normal pressure as a result of the flushing activities.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. OCWA will continue to work on the flushing programs to ensure consumer satisfaction.
