* Please Note: - specified dates may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

The flushing of water mains is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposit in the pipes over time. During the flushing period residents are advised to avoid using water and place their filters, softeners and other water treatment equipment in ‘by-pass’ mode. During the flushing period the water will remain safe and potable however, there may be brief periods of discoloration, cloudiness and temporary pressure fluctuations. 

After the flushing is completed we advise residents to clear their water lines. To do this simply let your cold water tap(remove screens/aerators on tap) closest to the incoming water line, run until the water flows clear prior to returning the water treatment equipment back on line.

The City of Kawartha Lakes thanks you for your co-operation during the annual spring flushing program.
