Some areas of Ward 3 will be undergoing watermain swabbing on October 9 and 10. Work will take place between the hours of 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. to minimize disruption. Residents and businesses will be notified in advance of the swabbing. See maps below for more information.

Note: This watermain swabbing work was originally scheduled for August, but had to be postponed due to road reconstruction in these areas.
Before the scheduled watermain cleaning operation, it is recommended that residents:
Turn off their water valve, located next to the watermeter to prevent water use
Fill a clean container with tap water for drinking and cooking (store in fridge)
Complete all dishwashing, clothes washing, and other water-use activities
Fill their bathtub with water for use around the house (residents may want to use a pail to transfer water from the bathtub to flush their toilet)
