Change to Fire Hydrant Flushing Schedule



The City of Saint John is proceeding with a program of fire hydrant flushing to clean the water distribution pipes in East Saint John, rather than West Saint John as scheduled.  Over the next few weeks flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  This may affect water customers in areas or subdivisions on or near Lakewood Heights, Ganong Road, Bon Accord, Champlain Heights, Hickey Road, Heather Way, McAllister Industrial Park, Highmeadow Park, Forest Hills, Glen Falls, Drury Cove and the Rothesay Road.

Customers may experience dirty water for up to 20 minutes if they use water during the time that the line on their street is being flushed.  Though customers may encounter a drop in water pressure, at no time should they be without water.
