Water Disruption notice

Beginning October 18, at 7 a.m. city crews will be working to replace a watermain valve on Homewood Avenue. This work may result in a water disruption for residents on Clarence Street between Glenwood Avenue and Homewood Avenue and along Homewood between Clarence Street and Division Street. The work is expected to last most of the day.

After water service is restored, homeowners may experience discoloured water. It is recommended to run an exterior tap or large indoor tap, such as a bathtub or laundry tub faucet until the water runs clear. If the water does not return to normal after running your tap for 10-15 minutes, please call Public Works at 905-835-2900. If you’re calling after-hours, please press ‘9’ to reach our dispatch.

Residents near these areas may also experience discoloured water.
Sudden changes in water flow affect the inside of the cast iron pipes in our city (30%) and this can create discolouration. If you are located near one of the main break areas, please follow the steps above to flush your line. You may want to monitor the City’s website or social media accounts to confirm the repair has been completed before you flush. If the water does not return to normal within 10-15 minutes of flushing, or you are not located near the watermain break areas, please call us.

Stay informed.
