During flushing of water mains customers will experience reduced water pressure and discolored water.
Customers are advised to visually check for discolored water during and after the above dates & times by running a cold water faucet; this particularly applies in cases of laundry, as suspended material causing the coloration can permanently stain clothes, linens, etc. If discolored water is experienced you should flush your system by running a cold water faucet.
It is recommended that customers without backflow prevention devices close their main shut-off valve, and water supply valve to hot water heaters to avoid the possibility of burning out heating elements or having discolored water enter your hot water heater. Those with booster pumps should consider turning off these appliances during flushing to avoid the possibility of damaging equipment.
The Town of Mahone Bay regrets any inconvenience which may be created during water main flushing procedures. Water main flushing is a maintenance procedure typically conducted once or twice a year for purposes of helping to clean our water mains.
Please direct any questions or inquiries regarding this matter to the Town Office at 902-624-8327.
