ENWIN Conducting Water System Flow Testing Until September

Tuesday May 11th, 2021, 7:31pm


Hello time traveller!!

ENWIN is conducting its annual Hydrant Flow Testing program across Windsor. This is part of an annual operation to test hydrant water flow, remove sediment from the pipes, maintain water clarity and quality and ensure adequate water supply to fight fires.

Daily updates will be posted on @enwinutilities and the ENWIN Website Twitter Feed. The program runs from May to October.

Officials say that mild discolouration and sedimentation may occur when testing is being conducted. This is normal and should clear up quickly. Customers can rest assured that their water is safe, and boiling water is not necessary.

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

  • Avoid doing laundry until water runs clear
  • Wait until water is clear before drinking
  • Use only cold water until system flow testing is complete
  • When testing is complete, run cold water until it runs clear
