Fire Hydrant and Line Flushing June 17, 2019

The Town is performing fire hydrant and line flushing.  Fire hydrants and lines are being flushed to remove sediment (minerals) from the water distribution system.  Citizens may experience fluctuations in water pressure and discoloration in water.  Please take necessary precautions when washing clothes.  Water samples are taken weekly at multiple points throughout the treatment and distribution system to ensure that water is safe to consume.  Water samples are sent to Alberta Health and the results are publicly posted on  Other factors throughout the year can cause fluctuations in water pressure and diminished water quality including power outages, large draws on water (fires, water main breaks, etc.), fire hydrant flushing, water well repair and maintenance, low water tables with high mineral content, recharging of green sand filters, etc.
