As part of its regular water system maintenance program, the Municipality will flush water mains in Cove Bay, Bowen Bay, King Edward Bay, Hood Point, and Tunstall Bay beginning Saturday, October 19 and continuing for 6 -8 weeks. Flushing will take place seven days a week from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and will rotate through each neighbourhood. This procedure is necessary to remove sediment that gradually deposits in pipes, and it does not pose a health hazard.

Bluewater Park and Eagle Cliff water systems will not undergo flushing unless it is determined that there is an appropriate volume of water to flush without stressing the systems.
