City of Brandon 2016 Water Main Cleaning Program

May 12, 2016


Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon’s Sewer and Water Department wishes to advise the public that its seasonal water main cleaning program will soon begin. The routine flushing process is conducted each year to maintain water quality along the distribution system. The program begins on May 16th and is scheduled to run until early November, weather-permitting.

Crews will spend approximately 1 month working through the areas from McDonald Avenue to Victoria Avenue, between 1st Street and 34th Street. Anticipated flushing in subsequent areas will be publicized when crews complete the above work.

Water main cleaning will be conducted between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Please watch for signs on either end of the street on the morning of water main cleaning in your area. To avoid complications, residents are asked not to run their water or flush their toilet while water main cleaning is occurring on their street. If discoloured water is drawn while City crews are flushing an area, residents are encouraged to run their taps until the water becomes clear.

If discoloured water continues to be drawn from the tap more than a few hours after flushing, please contact the City of Brandon Sewer and Water Department during business hours at 204-729-2285.

The City of Brandon thanks the public for its cooperation during this important maintenance of the water distribution system.
