Water Main Flushing - Longlac & Geraldton

Flushing of water mains will be conducted in Longlac & Geraldton from October 2 to October 13.

This is a regularly scheduled maintenance activity that occurs in the Spring and Fall annually.  The practice is conducted to ensure the drinking water system is fully recharged with newly chlorinated water, addressing areas of the system that may experience minimal water flows.  Sometimes discoloured water results from flushing as agitated water flows through they pipe network.  Residents are advised to run their taps for up to 15 minutes if discoloured water is present to aid with the recharging of the water system.

* If poor water quality persists, please advise the Public Services Department at 854-1100 ext. 2029.

 To report a water quality issue on the weekend, contact the on-call OCWA Operator at 854-8380 (Geraldton), 854-8286 (Longlac).
