Re: Watermain Inspection
The City of Ottawa will be inspecting watermains in your community on the following dates:
- September 15, 2015 (trial inspection)
- October 06, 2015 (final inspection)
This maintenance procedure is routine; however, you may experience brown or rusty coloured (discoloured) water during testing. You can use water during the testing as it is safe and not harmful to your health. It is recommended that you avoid doing laundry as it may stain.
If you detect discoloured water, avoid using your hot water. Turn on one cold water tap, and allow it to run for approximately five minutes – or until the water becomes clear.
These inspections are currently scheduled to take place between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; however, unforeseen circumstances may require changes to the work plan.
The City wishes to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
