Fire Hydrant Flushing: North-South-Central

20-Aug-2012

The City of Saint John is proceeding with a program of fire hydrant flushing to clean the water distribution pipes in Saint John.  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 the areas of the South-Central peninsula, Haymarket Square, Douglas Avenue, and neighbourhoods North and South of the Saint John Throughway

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.
