NOTICE OF WATER MAIN FLUSHING
The following water systems will be flushed during the day between 8:00am and 5:00pm on the corresponding dates below:
- Beachville: Thursday, October 18th
- Brownsville: Tuesday, October 9th
- Mount Elgin: Wednesday, October 10th

When water mains are flushed customers may experience discoloured water or sediment in the areas being flushed.
If you avoid water use during the flushing, it will help prevent dirty water being drawn into household lines. The iron in the water is an aesthetic problem and is not a health concern.
If you experience discoloured water, an outside tap or a laundry faucet not connected to a water softener or filter should be turned on after the work is completed, in order to flush the household lines. Please allow sufficient time for the water to clear. If you continue to have problems with the water please notify Oxford County Public Works at 1-866-537-7778. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the flushing program.
