Minor water interruptions mean fresher water for #Guelph

Minor water interruptions mean fresher water for Guelph:

The City will begin cleaning water mains in selected areas of Guelph on Friday, September 18. There are three parts to the cleaning program:

The City aims to complete all cleaning and flushing by Friday, October 30.

What to expect:

Drinking small amounts of discoloured water is unlikely to cause health issues. However, the City recommends waiting until water runs clear before drinking it. To clear discoloured water, run a cold water tap for five to fifteen minutes.

Why clean water mains?

Water main cleaning ensures customers receive the freshest water possible. Cleaning removes buildup of natural minerals such as iron and manganese. This reduces the chance that water will become discoloured.
