Flushing of the aqueduct system

Update May 12th 2022

Please note that the work for inspecting and testing the fire-hydrants has been extended until May 20th.


The Department of Public Works, Environmental health division, will be flushing the municipal aqueduct system.

The work will take place from May 1st to 7th between 9 pm and 7 am.

In addition, from May 9th to 13th between 7 am and 6 pm, a specialized firm will be inspecting and testing the fire-hydrants.

A drop in water pressure is to be expected and the water may appear dirty and/or turbid (air in pipes) as a result of this work. This situation is harmless and the water is nevertheless potable. By letting the water run for a short period of time, it will soon return to normal. We advise you to check the color of the water before doing your laundry.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THIS PERIOD, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO CLOSE YOUR HOT WATER TANK VALVE.

The Municipality will not be held responsible for any damages during or subsequent to this work.
