Notice of Water Main Flushing- Fall 2017


Please note that the water systems will be flushed in the following areas on the following dates:
-Beachville- Thursday, October 19, 2017- 8:00am-5:00pm
-Brownsville- Tuesday, October 10, 2017- 8:00am-5:00pm
-Dereham Centre- Friday, October 20, 2017- 8:00am-5:00pm

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 ino the 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 us at the County of Oxford, Public Works Department, at 1-866-537-7778.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the flushing program.
