Notice of Watermain Flushing

Filed under: ,
May 25, 2015 - The City of Kawartha Lakes wishes to inform the residents of Lindsay and Oakwood that the Water and Wastewater Division will be flushing watermain dead ends starting June 1, 2015 and will continue for a duration of four weeks. Cleaning will take place daily from 7am to 4:30pm.

The flushing of watermains is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposit in the pipes. There may be brief periods when your water becomes cloudy or discoloured. To clear your water lines, simply let your cold water tap run until the water flows clear. Please check your drinking, cooking and laundry water before using. Also, there may be temporary pressure fluctuations during flushing.

The City of Kawartha Lakes thanks you for your co-operation during the flushing program. Follow us on Twitter @CKL_WandWW for the most recent updates.

Rob Gamache, Supervisor, Environmental Services
