On behalf of the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio, the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) will be conducting water distribution system maintenance. 

Municipal water users are advised that the flushing or swabbing of drinking watermains will take place at the following locations and time periods:

Swabbing Watermains October 2022
AreaService DescriptionService Time Period
Lisle Watermain Swabbing 11 OCT
Rosemont Watermain Swabbing 12 OCT
Loretto Watermain Swabbing 13 OCT
Everett Watermain Swabbing 14 OCT

Hours of swabbing work will be Tuesday to Friday 11 to 14 of October, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Please be aware that during watermain flushing and swabbing, residents may experience low to no water pressure and severe discoloration (brown / red) water, or perhaps even no water for short periods of time.

To alleviate the discolored water, please isolate hot water tanks and bypass water softeners during the work periods, and once work is complete, open the taps in your home until the water runs clear. Before doing laundry, it is recommended that the taps are opened, and water is flushed to clear beforehand. 

Some customers may encounter plugged water meters if they use water during a swab run process. We are prepared to clean services and meters if this occurs upon notice to OCWA.

Please be aware that low pressure alarms on fire systems may be affected and may call out to the fire department. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Ontario Clean Water Agency at 1-866-775-7712.
