Other Water Notice

Water Shutdowns

  • During an emergency water shutdown, our contractor may not have time to door-knock as they want to give all their attention to getting water restored as soon as possible. We understand that this can be inconvenient, but rest assured we are working as quickly as possible to restore your water supply.
  • Before a planned water shutdown occurs, we update this section of our website and send out emails/texts to residents of the area involved. In some cases, customer may also receive a letter by post.
  • Our contractors will work as quickly as possible to restore your water supply.

Conserve Water

In some cases, residents are asked to conserve water. While water supply is disrupted, customer are asked to:

  • Avoid irrigating and watering lawns and gardens
  • Reduce household and business water consumption where possible
  • Find an alternative source for stock watering if possible.
  • When the water is switched back on, we encourage our customers to flush their taps by running them for a few minutes starting with the any outside taps to clear any debris.
  • In the case of businesses that require constant water service, they will need to organize their own water storage as necessary. If they have a fire sprinkler, it is recommended that they inform their insurance company of the water shutdown.
