Fire Hydrant Flushing


The Municipality of Middlesex Centre will be conducting its annual fire hydrant flushing from May to June throughout the municipality as part of its ongoing preventative maintenance program.

During this time, customers may temporarily experience discoloured water when hydrants in their neighbourhood are flushed. If you experience discoloured water or low pressure, we encourage you to run your cold-water tap until the water clears.

Watermain flushing using fire hydrants is done annually to improve water quality at the tap, exercise hydrants and remove iron build-up naturally occurring in the pipes.

Thank you for your co-operation. If you have any questions, please call Public Works and Engineering at 519-666-0190.
