Spring Hydrant Flushing and Maintenance


Notice to the Residents of the Township of Southwold

Hydrant flushing and maintenance of the Southwold Distribution System will begin on April 12 for a 3-week duration. 

During flushing, residents may experience a drop in pressure or discolouration of their water.  Any disruption should be of a short duration and should only occur while mains in the area are being flushed.   It is recommended that you turn on a cold water tap, preferably in a laundry tub, to flush out your service once flushing has occurred in your area.   If there is an aerator on your tap, remove it prior to flushing your taps.  

If you have any questions, contact the Township of Southwold at 519-769-2010.
