Water System Flushing Program

The RM of Hanover carries out regular maintenance on its water distribution system including watermain cleaning and hydrant flushing programs. Program information is communicated to residents prior to commencement of work.


Schedule

Kleefeld - flushing takes place every 2nd Wednesday of the month (May to October/November, depending on winter freeze up)

Grunthal - flushing takes place every 3rd Wednesday and Thursday of the month (May to October/November, depending on winter freeze up)


Process

Water is pushed at a high velocity through the watermain system and can result in the displacement of built-up iron particles. This is not harmful, the water is safe, and is still being treated. During or right after maintenance, any "yellowing" should clear up quickly by running the tap for a few minutes until the discoloration subsides. If the issue persists or if residents have any concerns please contact the Engineering & Utilities Department.
