2022 Unidirectional Flushing

7:00pm - 7:00am

2022 Water Line Flushing

 

The City of North Battleford will begin the 2022 unidirectional flushing on Monday, May 9th. This process is estimated to be completed on Friday, May 20th. The benefits of unidirectional flushing maintenance ensure that the City’s water distribution lines are operating efficiently and that water quality remains optimal.

Unidirectional flushing is done by moving water through the lines at a high velocity creating a scouring action. Water is then discharged, removing any material buildup from the line. The material removed from the lines through the flushing process is harmless and requires no special treatment.

The neighbourhoods of Killdeer Park, Fairview Heights, Riverview, Yellow Sky, Parsons Industrial Park and parts of Centennial Park will be affected by the water main flushing.

“WATER MAIN FLUSHING” signs on your block indicate that you will be affected by the unidirectional flushing that night. You can continue with regular water use until 7:00 pm that evening. In some cases, water main flushing of a block may take a few nights. In these cases, residents may use the water as normal from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Follow these tips to protect your home and goods from discoloured water and sediment produced from the flushing process:

  • Do not use any taps after 7:00 pm

  • Fill your bathtub or pails before 7:00 pm for water to manually flush toilets

  • Set aside a store of water for washing hands, washing dishes and consumption

  • Turn off your water softeners, freezer or any other devices that may use water

  • Run the water from an outside tap for 10-minutes or until the water runs clear (if necessary)

  • Restart your water softener, freezer and any other devices that were turned off

Water tap use or toilet flushing while the unidirectional flushing is active can result in stained laundry, plugged filters, and damage to water heaters. The City is not responsible for damages. Once the flushing signs have been removed from your street, you may return to normal water usage.

If you use medical equipment requiring continuous water supply, please call City Hall immediately. If you are a commercial customer that operates during the flushing hours, contact City Hall for more information.
