Fire Hydrant Flushing - South Central Zone


The City of Saint John is proceeding with a program of fire hydrant flushing to clean the water distribution pipes in Saint John. 

Starting on Monday, July 29 and continuing over the next few weeks flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m in the South Central Zone.  

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 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.
