Water main flushing program starts April 27

The Town of Riverview’s annual water main flushing program helps to maintain high-quality water throughout the town. During a flushing operation in your neighbourhood, you’ll see crews flushing the water system at a high velocity through fire hydrants.  

Flushing is scheduled for April 27 to May 22, 2020 between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. from Monday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

Here's what you need to know:

  • During the flushing process, you may notice temporary water discolouration or low pressure. This is temporary and should clear within a short time. Water consumption should be minimized if there is a change in the water's appearance.
  • Residents are also reminded to refrain from doing laundry where possible between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. the week that flushing is scheduled in your area (see map). This will reduce the likelihood of clothes becoming stained by discoloured water.
  • To prevent staining and to clear water lines after flushing, turn on the cold water tap until the water runs clear.

Please direct any inquiries to the Department of Engineering and Public Works at 387-2030 or info@townofriverview.ca.
