Water mains to be flushed June 10-14
The City of Winnipeg regularly flushes all of the water mains within the city to clean and move loose deposits. The University of Manitoba will have the three water mains that service our campus flushed the week of June 10-14. The flush takes between 30-60 minutes and the water is discharged from the fire hydrants.
This cleaning process could cause the water to appear cloudy during, and shortly after the process, if the water is not clear, turn off the tap, wait 30 minutes and try again. Do not use discolored water for any purposes that require clean water, such as preparing food and beverages or laundry.
