Fire Hydrant Flushing


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 a.m. and 8 p.m. This may affect water customers in areas or subdivisions on or near:

Douglas Avenue

Chesley Drive

and all of those neighborhoods north of the Saint John Throughway within the boundaries of:

Bridge Street

Belleview Avenue

Rope Walk Road

Samuel Davis Drive 

Rockwood Park

Customers may experience turbidity (dirty or cloudy) 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.  The water is safe to consume.
