Distribution System - Fire Flow Testing

In the coming weeks there will be distribution system – fire flow testing.

This will occur from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily for users of the Kincardine and Tiverton Municipal Water Systems.

While all users may be affected by this testing over the next two weeks, week 1 from May 6th to the 9th, 2024 is expected to be more isolated to the Tiverton system and the Lakeshore pipeline.

Week 2 from May 13th to the 16th, 2024 is anticipated to have more affect on the town of Kincardine.

Due to the high-pressure during flushing, periods of discolouration may take place. Reducing your water usage during flushing hours will help to minimize the amount of sediment and discolouration introduced into your household system.

Household cold water taps may need to be flushed for several minutes and screens or filters cleaned after distribution flushing has occurred prior to using the water.

Please check taps prior to completing any laundry, and if discolouration is noted, run taps until water runs clear prior to completing any laundry.

For any questions, please call the Environmental Services department at 519-396-4660.
