Hydrant Flushing – Admiralty Wood

The City of Mount Pearl wishes to notify residents in the area of Admiralty Wood that hydrant flushing is taking place on September 15th, 16th and 17th.  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 color 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 until water runs clear to avoid the possibility of clothes being soiled or stained by discoloured water.

Should water discolouration persist, residents can 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.
