What do I do if I am experiencing low pressure?
Check the pressure regulator inside your home, the screen may need cleaning; if this still does not solve the problem call our office and report low pressure for your area.
Why is my water discolored?
A repair or flushing of the water mains could have been completed recently causing the discoloration. Run your outside tap until the water runs clear.
What chemicals does our water system add to the water?
Only chemicals that are approved by the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality for treatment of drinking water.
My water tastes, looks, and smells funny. Is it safe to drink?
Public water systems are required to maintain a minimum chlorine level of 0.2 mg/L (tested at the end of each line). Our disinfectant levels are tested daily to ensure safety.
Why does debris come out of the faucet when running hot water?
Most likely your water heater needs to be flushed. CAUTION: Most manufacturers recommend hiring a professional to flush your water heater. If you plan on doing this yourself, read the owner's manual to keep from being hurt and or damaging the water heater.
