Hydrant Flushing Notice

Please be advised that the Town of Torbay Public Works Department will be commencing our annual Hydrant Flushing Program on Monday June 19, 2017. Operations will be conducted between 9:30am and 3:00pm daily until further notice.

During the flushing program residents can expect reduced water pressure, discoloration and momentary interruption of water service. The Town advises residents to please refrain from doing laundry during these hours of flushing  as the discoloration may stain clothing. The Town apologizes for the inconvenience and asks for your cooperation during our operations.

Should you have any questions or require further information, please contact the Town at 437-6532.

    Any way to notify residents what areas are being done on a given day? I loose water completely when you guys flush hydrants around the Bauline Line area? Would be nice if council had a schedule that they could abide by, so residents affected could make alternate plans for that day(s).

      Hi Glen,

      Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately a set schedule is very hard to adhere to. Events can arise that will take staff’s attention away from the flushing program to deal with a higher priority issue. Those issues can throw off a schedule for days potentially, making it difficult to provide residents with a more accurate schedule.

      Hi Steph, the discolored water may linger in your homes’ lines for a time once the daily flushing is completed. Run a tap in your bathtub until it runs clear. We’ve made good progress this week and hope to have an announcement on the completion of the program in the next week or so. Keep an eye on our website and social media feeds.
