Discolouration of water due to high water consumption

The municipalities of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview have been experiencing water discolouration due to higher than normal water consumption. We have been monitoring water quality extensively during this period of high flows and will continue to do so. 

The discolouration of water is caused by a manganese build-up on large transmission lines which is being dislodged by the higher flows and this discolouration is not associated with health effects. We recommend that if your water is discoloured, you refrain from doing white washes as it may stain clothes.

Even though no water restrictions are currently in place, we ask all customers to be water-wise during this period of hot weather.

The municipalities of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciates the patience and cooperation of customers.

For more information, please contact Riverview's Department of Public Works: 506-387-2030.
