Subject: NO-DES Water Flushing

It is the Town’s goal to provide our customers with high-quality drinking water that you can drink with confidence. One of these steps involves flushing our lines to circulate water and remove debris caused by pipe scaling and mineral deposits. We also have a history of sand in our system that has prevented us from doing high-velocity flushing, which would normally remove the scaling and stagnant water. 

Two years ago, the Town partnered with ValveTek Services to perform high-velocity flushing by a means that scours the pipelines and filters the water at the same time, removing any unwanted material. This filtered water is then reintroduced to the system eliminating the water waste usually associated with this type of maintenance activity. This is a proven method that works in an efficient manner as the reuse of water is critical in reducing the Town’s carbon footprint and saves the ratepayers money at the same time.

This project will start on March 26th, 2018 and is expected to be completed in approximately two (2) weeks.
