The annual fall watermain flushing program in Bancroft begins today. The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) will be flushing in Bancroft until Sunday October 20th. Flushing will take place between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily, including the weekend. Flushing the watermains will remove sediment from them. The flushing could cause discoloured water and lower than normal water pressure. Bancroft residents should run a cold water tap for a few minutes each morning to clear any discoloured water from their plumbing during the flushing program. You can get a copy of the flushing schedule at the Town of Bancroft Office, or on the Town of Bancroft’s website. To report any water quality problems call OCWA at (613) 332-3811.
