Port Colborne doing fire hydrant maintenance tomorrow
Published September 1, 2021 at 3:52 pm
Starting tomorrow (September 2) from 7:30 am to 4 pm, Port Colborne’s Public Works department in conjunction with Niagara Region, will be doing fire hydrant maintenance.
This includes flow testing and flushing to ensure adequate water flow for firefighting activities, fire sprinkler systems, residents, and businesses. The following hydrant maintenance activities will take place at the following locations:
- Elizabeth Street at Killaly Street
- King Street, between Elgin Street and Delhi Street
- Fielden Street at Killaly Street
- Bell Street at Welland Street
The city said the goal is to clear any iron and mineral deposits from watermains to help maintain the City’s water clarity and quality.
Residents in these areas may notice their water is temporarily rusty in colour because the iron and mineral deposits in the water are stirred up. The water is safe to use and consume during hydrant maintenance, however, it may stain laundry.
Residents with concerns can call Public Works at 905-835-5079.
