Posted On Sunday June 21, 2020


Residential / Industrial / Commercial Users

Please be advised that the Town of New Tecumseth Public Works Department will be conducting routine maintenance/flushing of the Tottenham Distribution System daily between the hours of 8am and 4pm commencing July 6, 2020. This process may take up to five (5) weeks to complete with an anticipated completion date of August 7, 2020.   

During the flushing process, low water pressure and discoloured water may be experienced. It is recommended cold water taps are checked and let run until water runs clear (usually five to ten minutes). If discolouration persists for longer please contact the Public Works Department. It is also suggested that before starting laundry, fill and run the washing machine through a rinse cycle to prevent staining of laundry items. Please see Town website for information and updates on social media (Facebook and Twitter). Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
