The City of Mount Pearl wishes to notify residents that the annual watermain flushing program will take place from October 10th to October 31st for the above noted streets.  This program will continue in these areas on a daily basis (Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).  This work is in accordance with the City’s water system and fire flow protection maintenance programs.

Flushing can cause the following temporary changes in your water service:

  • low water pressure
  • changes in water colour or cloudiness  (if this occurs, residents should run the cold-water tap in a bathtub or laundry tub until water runs clear)
  • slight change in taste and/or odor of the water

These conditions are normal during the flushing process.  The City will work diligently to ensure that the water service will be restored to normal as soon as possible.

Please note, it is recommended that residents refrain from doing laundry between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. to avoid the possibility of clothes being soiled or stained by discoloured water.

Should water discolouration persist, residents should contact the City’s Infrastructure and Public Works Department at 748-1016.

The City appreciates the cooperation and understanding of its residents during this program.
