The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) will be flushing watermains for the Township of Springwater on an operated water system in your area. It is very important that residents REDUCE water use from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. so that we may effectively complete maintenance on the water systems.

During or after this flushing period, you may experience discoloured water and/or low water pressure coming from your tap. If this happens, we suggest you try the following:
- Remove the tap aerators off your taps and flush all the house lines until the water runs clear.
- Flush out your hot water tanks. This is to remove the accumulated iron precipitate in the tank; this iron may also decrease the efficiency of your water tank.
Should your water continue to be discoloured, please contact the Ontario Clean Water Agency, Georgian Bay Hub at the number listed below. Thank you for your cooperation!
