EnWin is conducting its annual Water System Flushing program across Windsor.

The initial area of flushing operations is bounded by Tecumseh Road to the north, Division Road to the south, Howard Avenue to the west and Riberdy Avenue to the east, between daily between 8am and 3:30pm until June 7th.

For daily information about where we are working, customers can follow them on Twitter, @ENWINUtilities, or see the Hydrant System Flushing Map available on ENnWin’s website.

Customers located in the targeted flushing areas may notice some mild discolouration and sedimentation while the flushing is taking place, but officials say that this is not harmful and should clear up after running their water tap for several minutes.

EnWIn recommends that customers follow the guidelines listed below when system testing is underway in their area:

  • Fill some containers with water you may require during the duration of the work.
  • Laundry may be damaged due to the discolouration of the water. Please avoid doing laundry until the flushing has completed work in your neighbourhood for that day.
  • Try not to run any hot water taps, as some discoloured water and sediment may be drawn into your hot water heater.
  • When the system flushing is finished and you notice discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.
