Each spring Norfolk County staff provide routine maintenance to the watermains throughout the County.

During a flush, hydrants are opened and allowed to flow in a controlled manner in one direction. The increased flow scours pipe walls, cleaning the sediment from inside the watermains.

The spring schedule is as follows:

  • Waterford- March 29 – April 16
  • Port Dover- April 6 – May 14
  • Delhi- April 12 – April 23
  • Simcoe- April 19 – May 28
  • Courtland- April 26 – April 30
  • Port Rowan- May 3 – May 7

Discoloured water is a normal side effect of cleaning watermains. If you notice discoloured water, simply run your faucet until clear.
