Watermain break - 31 Inwood Cres

Posted on Thursday February 23, 2017

Time: 10:00

Location of break: 31 Inwood Cres

Between Glasgow St and Westwood Dr

Road is closed at both ends of Inwood Cres

Water pressure has been lowered on Inwood, Glasgow and Westwood

Discoloured Water

The discolouration is from iron and manganese that are naturally occurring in the groundwater. When the mains are flushed or there is a change in pressure from events such as a fire or a watermain break; the iron and manganese that has settled in the distribution system can be stirred up. To eliminate the discoloured water you can turn on a cold water tap nearest your water meter and let it flush slowly for several minutes until it runs clear.


Milky water

If your water is "milky", it has air in it. You can turn on a cold water tap at the highest point in your home and again let it run slowly for a few minutes until the air is gone.

 Update: 12:45 - The water is off on Inwwod Cres & Inwood Dr.
