Fire Hydrant Flushing

Tuesday, April 28, 2020   view pdf

The Ontario Clean Water Agency will be conducting scheduled maintenance of village fire hydrants and the water distribution system. This program is designed to ensure that our hydrants will be ready if needed by the fire department and to maintain the water distribution system.
The hydrants are inspected for proper operation and their flow capacities are checked.
This maintenance procedure is routine but may result in some temporary minor inconveniences such as reduced water pressure or “red” water.
IF COLOURED WATER IS DETECTED
1) Please open your COLD water taps to clear the system.
2) The coloured water is not hazardous to your health.
3) This situation is temporary and should last no longer than two hours.
The staff of the Ontario Clean Water Agency and the Township of Madawaska Valley thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
