Brown water here. Brown water there, maybe all around

Friday, June 27, 2014   by: SooToday.com Staff

NEWS RELEASE

PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION

**************************
PUC water customers are reminded that the Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) Program is continuing in the east end of the city.

The flushing area for the week of June 30 to July 4 will be the area generally bounded by Tamarack Avenue to Dacey Road and Trunk Road to River Road.

Customers are encouraged to visit the PUC website at www.ssmpuc.com for regular updates and to see a map(s) of the flushing area.

The PUC would like to advise that during flushing activities, there is a high probability some customers outside of the flushing area could also experience discoloured water, potentially up to several kilometers away.

This is due to the fact that any time there is a major change in the rate or direction of flow of water in the distribution system, sediment in the watermains can be disturbed and carried along with the water.

The UDF Program is performed in order to remove sediment from within the city’s watermains and is a recognized industry best practice for improving water quality.

PUC Services apologizes for this inconvenience.
