Notice: Hydrant flushing in Grande Cache will take place June 1-3, 2022
Environmental Services will be flushing hydrants Wednesday, June 1, 2022 to Friday, June 3, 2022.
Hydrant flushing is the quick release of water from fire hydrants—a controlled procedure that is vital to the general maintenance of our water distribution system. It ensures adequate water flow is available to residents and businesses—as well as to our firefighters during major firefighting efforts. It also helps maintain our water clarity and quality by clearing iron and mineral deposits from the water mains (distribution pipes).
Hydrant Flushing Schedule: (please see map below for details)
Wednesday, June 1: 97, 98 & 99 Street & Memorial Drive
Thursday, June 2: 100 & 104 Street, Hoppe Avenue & Shand Avenue
Friday, June 3: Phase 1
Sometimes hydrant flushing can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and mineral deposits in the water get stirred up. This cloudy or tinted water is still safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, but it may stain laundry. Please flush/run your taps after the hydrant flushing has subsided in your area to help wash away any residual particles that may have entered your water line.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
