Fire hydrant flushing to take place in Owen Sound

cjos fire hydrant

The City of Owen Sound is undertaking flow testing of various fire hydrants on the west side of the City, primarily north of 10th Street.

If you live in this general area you may notice a temporary change in pressure, and/or brownish- orange colour in your water, which is a common consequence of flushing older cast iron watermains.  

This is not a health issue and running your water for a while will clear it up.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Public Works directly at 519-376-4274.
