Flushing of the waterworks system in some sectors of the Town
During the next few weeks, the Town will be flushing the waterworks system in some sectors between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Note that this could possibly cause a drop in water pressure, which is normal. When you see the teams at work in your neighborhood, reduce your water consumption and avoid washing during these hours. If the water gets cloudy, turn on all cold water faucets and let the water run for 10 to 15 minutes.
Finally, after the work, we suggest you clean the filter of your taps in order to facilitate the flow, and to purge your water heater to reduce any deposits of limestone. Flushing the water system is necessary to maintain good water quality. We regret the inconvenience caused by this operation and thank you for your cooperation.
During the work period, citizens of the streets concerned will be contacted by automated telephone message.
