Annual Fire Hydrant Flushing and Maintenance Programs

Apr 10, 2017 | Public Works | Public Notice

To Users of the Following Water Systems:

  • Orangeville Water System
  • Cardinal Woods Water System (Mono)
  • Coles/Island Lake/Purple Hill Water System (Mono)

Please be aware that from April 24 to June 30, 2017 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week, Orangeville Water Works Staff will be completing fire hydrant flushing and maintenance programs in the water systems noted above.  The programs are completed on a regular basis to ensure the fire hydrants remain in good working order and that any accumulated sediments in the watermains are removed.

Due to possible sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using.  If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.

Users of the Orangeville and Mono water systems are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program.  Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.

Your cooperation and understanding during the fire hydrant flushing and maintenance programs is appreciated.
