Fall Hydrant Flushing 2023 September 5 - October 31 2023


Please be advised that hydrant flushing will commence in the Town of Deep River beginning on Tuesday September 5th, 2023. Flushing will run until Tuesday October 31st, 2023 but may be extended due to unforeseeable circumstances, please check the NRT and Town website for any changes to these dates.

Flushing is part of a routine maintenance program that is necessary to maintain the integrity of the water system, remove sediment from water mains, verify the proper operation of hydrants and valves, and maintain firefighting capability.

Residents throughout Town may experience a drop in water pressure and water may be discoloured due to flushing of the distribution system. If you have discoloured water, please run your COLD-WATER TAPS ONLY (suggested taps: outside hose, bathtub or laundry tub) until the water is clear.

Please DO NOT use your hot water until you have clear running water again.
