Why is a flushing program needed?

This periodic program will improve the water quality…


What does the process involve?

Unidirectional flushing of the water distribution system is a systematic removal of non-solidified deposits using water velocity. An organized and strategic manipulation of hydrants to be flushed and valves ensures that the source of water used to clean always comes from previously flushed sections, with minimal disturbance to surrounding areas.

Consequently, you could experience a temporary slight loss of water pressure and your water could also be rust coloured. This may cause some inconvenience such as stains on fabrics. However, there is no risk for your health.

 

What to do in case of rusty water?

The Village of Senneville suggests that you leave the cold water running until the water looses its coloration.


The Village of Senneville apologizes for the inconveniences associated with this work necessary to maintain the quality of service, and thanks you for your understanding.
